Friday night, August 24th Marathon Oil Company celebrated their 100th year in Wyoming and it was kind a big deal for Pamela and myself. The painting you see in this picture I painted for the Marathon Oil Company and has been featured in the Buffalo Bill Museum all summer along with three other paintings. That in itself is a high honor. The banquet Friday night featured speakers Governor Matt Mead, Senator Al Simpson, Senator Mike Enzi along with the CEO of Marathon, Clarence P. Cazalot. I was asked to share a few words when a full size giclee reproduction was given to Governor Mead.
My daughters Heather Hopkinson Nielsen and Summer Hopkinson Lofgran accompanied Pamela and me. It was a fun night.
