Monday Morning
Image size 16" x 20"
trim size 18" x 23"

 

 

This picture is self-explanatory. This situation is usually caused by loss of sleep, too much wine, dine and dancing, major breakdown of equipment, financial situation, or the loss of a working partner.

Beautifully lithographed on Gallery Plate Finish, 100% rag paper, in the same size 16" x 20" as the original oil painting.

Ole got the idea for this painting and posed for it himself, in our living room, sitting on the Organ Bench.  When he painted the picture he removed the bench and put it in a setting out in the woods.

Saturday
Image size 21" x 16"
trim size 24" x 18"

 

This Saturday night bath in a galvanized tub was a ritual that many old timers well remember. It was an experience also shared by the artist's family, starting with the youngest child and progressing to the oldest. Where plumbing is not available this practice continues.

Beautifully lithographed on 80# Precision Dull Cover. 

 Ole could remember how the family took baths in the olden days and wanted to capture this picture for those who could also remember.  He took the picture of the young lady in the tub in our own living room, but placed it in a small room with an old wood stove that some friends had installed in their home.   He added the wood box and the towel on the chair, and then threw in the red hat, like the logger had just got home and surprised his wife.  The model was Linda Nelson of Springfield, Oregon.

Roy's Tired
1923 - 1986
Image size 20" x 16"
trim size 22" x 19"

 

Roy Slater was a typical West Coast Logger, born in Sweet Home, Oregon and raised in the Willamette Valley. He started working in the woods a the age of 16, and worked his way up from Choker Setter to High Climber, and then Logging Superintendent for Rookard Logging Co., Eugene. He worked in Oregon, Northern California and Alaska.

Beautifully lithographed on 80# Quintessence Dull Cover. 

One day a lady by the name of Hazel Slater wrote Ole and asked him if he could draw in pen and ink a picture she had enclosed of Roy Slater.  The picture was taken with an old box camera and was very small.  Ole couldn’t do it in pen and ink, but decided he could do it in oil.  He added the rain coat hanging on the wall and the cork boots. Roy had passed away and the picture meant a great deal to Hazel and her children, and to Roy’s relatives.

Model for this unlimited edition of the "Buck Hunter" is former Logging Superintendent Charlie Reese of Springfield, Oregon.

Ole was still working and looking at timber sales and sometimes Charlie Reese would ride with him.  He would let Ole out  of the pickup on some units and  drive around and pick him up on the bottom, after Ole had checked the volume.  Ole took a picture of  him in his own backyard and for the painting he added a deer walking across the road behind him, in a made up scene.

The Footlog
Image size 13 3/4" x 22", trim size 16 1/2 x 24"

Some run across 'em, some crawl, and some walk cautiously  The Footlog is depicted in this colored print of an oil painting by Eldon R. "Ole" Olin. 

Beautifully lithographed on Rising Mirage 100% rag paper.

Ole walked many footlogs in his life as a timber cruiser, and one time fell in the water and had to build a fire and dry out before finishing the days work.  At that time he was the Compassman on the job and the older Timber Cruisers helped him out of the water and to a fire they built to dry out his clothes.   The man on the left in the painting was Lou Surcamp of Springfield, Oregon.  He came out to the house and posed on a trailer bed as if he was walking a footlog.  He was dressed in good clothes and Ole changed them for the painting to work clothes.  The man on the right, was John Venator of Eugene, Oregon.  Both John and Ole were cruising the same track of timber one day and Ole asked John if he would pose like he was walking a footlog.  John said, “You know I don’t like footlogs, but I will do it if you will trim me down a little in weight”.  Ole agreed, and therefore John lost a little weight for the picture.  Both men are now deceased.
