Historic Paddle Illustration - More Frederick Verner

Here's another painting by Frederick A Verner (1836 – 1928), a painter who's work has previously shown some sort of paddle decoration in his native art scenes. This piece entitled "Two Indians in Canoe" shows the bow paddler with a red chevron themed paddle decoration.
