The above photograph is one of Monte starting the clean up in the Clubhouse at Big Lake after a flood, most likely in 1973.  Notice two things: the first is the hat Monte is wearing.  Sharyl learned a great many skills while married to Monte.  One was knitting (because of economics, Sharyl became quite adept at many hand crafts.  Often times she would give away during the Christmas season).  Monte wore this black and brown knitted, winter hat for many, many years.  It still is in existence and in the possession of his son, Eric.

The other interesting item is in the upper left hand portion of the photograph is a print of Monte’s painting, Misty Return.  This was a very large oil painting and seen below.

UPDATE – The first thought print is not a print, but the actual painting, Misty Return.  This was learned after reading an old profile of Monte.

It is not known who owns this original.
