Here's the Beav, paying tribute to C.M. Russell, who did a splendid job of balancing the life of an artist with the life of a cowboy.  Russell was born on March 19, 1864, and became a cowboy at the tender age of 16, when he set off on his own.  In 1888, he lived with the Blackfeet Indians for about a year, providing him the opportunity to document an amazing culture that has since vanished from the face of the earth.  In addition to water colors and oil paintings, Russell is also known for his western-themed sculptures.
