Cowboys dream
This is an original (verified) screen print of the A-1 version. Have communicated with with a man who claims he owns three of the four known copies. What confuses me is that all the others say "6 pack $1.00" Mine says "6 pack $.96

I am a Manager at LON's restaurant, which is located in a house that Lon Megargee built in the 1930's. We have many Lon Megargee paintings in our restaurant and have been telling the history of Lon for years. If you are ever in town please come by and check us out. If you have questions about any art we may be able to answer them for you. We even have ghost stories about the restaurant. Lon was the first commissioned artist in Arizona and also has painting at the State Capital Building. Come in and see me for a tour and our version of the Lon Megargee Experience.

lon megargee oil painting
I believe that I have an original oil painting on canvass of what is almost the same painting as "Cowboy Saturday Night" that was done for A-1.
The painting needs some restoration.

The signature block has the L O N spaced out above the MEGARGEE and what looks like the date 1917 under it.

We always thought it was a print of a real nice painting so it hasn't been given the care it deserves.

Lon Megargee's paintings
I'm interested in finding the title for two prints that I think came from the 40's-50's 1, cowboy in a bath tub,horse looking through window. 2, Lady in wash tub taking bath with a cowboy playing guitar. Thanks for any infor

Lon Megargee follow-up
Since my 3/28 posting, I have removed the painting from the frame, taken digital pics, and have the following to add: On the back is written "Out of the Canyon" #7, Class No 180; Lot No. 538; Watercolor; 16 x 20 3/4 Bate Studio, Third Floor Lyecuro (sp?) Bldg, Los Angeles, Cal.
On the front under L. Megargee is spaced out 1 9 17.
I assume the latter is the date. If it is a watercolor, it is very thick, looking like multi-layers where the top is damaged. I plan on having it repaired and insured. It's a treasure! Any one know why it would be number at #7? Did he do a series of Indian paintings/watercolors?
Thanks!

L. Megargee
I am very excited to finally find something about who did this painting. I got it at a yard sale and even tho one corner is damaged, and I thought it odd that it was painted on a board like material and not traditional canvas, I loved the picture and took it home. Been looking since last summer for info. Mine is an Indian on horse back coming over a rise, with the silouette of another rider behind. It is done in mostly blue and brown tones with a bit of yellow. I Love it and want to have the corner of the sky where the paint is falling off repaired. Any one know the name of the picture?? (There is a hint of more lettering under the signature, but it's hidden by the frame. Because of the 'sky falling' I hesitate to take it out to see what is written. My painting also has a red mark after the signature. Looks like an M over a circle with a large red dot in the center of the circle. Again, any info would be appreciated!

Megargee lived with my grandparents near Jerome Arizona and in exchange for board paid them with two paintings. One painting was a portrait of Yellow Horse Navajo. The other was a painting of my grandfather's sheep ranch, a canyon with sheep on the mountainside. Both are dated 1911.
