Local Artist I am Truman Miller, formerly of Letter Gap, West Virginia and now live in Cass. I am married to the former Mrs. Warren E. Blackhurst. I have been painting and sketching hndscapes for about as long as I can remember. Recalling memory, my first art was in pre-school years. I started to school -when I was old enough to walk the eight miles a day to and from school at the age of eight years. It was a one room school in the vicinity of Letter Gap, known as Walnut Grove Elementary. Eight grades were taught by one teach- er. Each day started with prayer. Here or them fond me- mories linger, since the big yellow school bus came by to pick up the students and transport them many miles from home to what was known as Normantown Height School and Elemen- tary Grades. Pre-school art consisted of placing a leaf under a sheet of paper against the window pane and tracing with a penci L the old hard lead type of pencil made from red spruce wood, with the eraser inserted in the wood. The eraser was long used up before the pencil was short enough to throw away and get another one, which could be purchased at any grocery store for one cent each. Although this was primitive type of art, much could be learned through nature itself. That was get- ting down to the funda- mental principles. Learning perspective, too, in this early age, to make the leaf look like it was suspended, with shad- ows beneath the edges, making it look like it was lying on the paper rath- er than sticking flat against it. While yet in the elemen- tary grades at Norman- town, I used to draw maps free handed for the high school students for ten cents each. The whole of forty eight states. I remember purchasing my first new ink pen, a tapered wooden shank with an inserted steel writing tip or point. Ink wells were used in those days and each desk had one in the upper right corner of the desk; you had to dip the pen often to write a few lines.

I chose Number 4, since it is one of the first engines to be used on the Scenic Railroad. It took me two months to paint the original, and since it didn't turn out to be such a poor painting, which I did in acrylic, I had litho- graph prints made by the Jones Printing Company, in Charleston. To my right is the orig- inal, and my left is the lithoprint, size 17 x 21 inches including the half inch border. These prints will be on sale in mailing tubes at the Cass Country Store and wildlife museum, this sum- mer during the tourist sea- son. Price of the prints are $3.98, plus tax. This is my first serious try to paint a train engine, and perhaps my last as I'm nearing my 62nd birthday. Truman Miller to Fun and Games Night at Old House Run.
