Description This is a preliminary sketch/study for the Daniel Boone mural at the new state capitol in Frankfort. The image shows three men in front of a stand of trees on the left side of the sketch. There is one man in a white shirt with his left hand at his brow and his right hand on his hip. In front of him is a man in brown buckshins leaning on his rifle. The rifle butt is on the ground and his hands are crossed on the end of the barrel with his chin resting on his hands. The third man is standing tall and straight with a rifle in his right hand which is at his side. All three men are looking into the distance toward the right. There is a brown area to the right of the image that presumably is a human but there are no distinctive markings.
