"The End of an Era"
by Tom Marlin

As seen in issue #36 of 3D Artist Magazine

The novel I wrote, THREE FORKS - A NOVEL OF TEXAS inspired this image. I've always been fascinated by transitions in time, when one era ends and another begins. For almost a century, the chuck wagon provided cowboys with the provisions they needed on long cattle drives -- the first 'meals on wheels,' if you will. But at some point, technology passed by these vehicles and they were left out to pasture. This scene also represents a fond memory: I ventured out into a field of Longhorns to shoot the background image, despite the snarls and grumblings of a very large steer.
