Roughneck art takes the form of paintings, photos and graphic illustrations and much of it is simply spectacular!
Let’s start our review of roughneck art with the photography. There are some amazing photos available from a variety of sites. Our friend Chip Forelli has captured some awesome shots. This is one of my favorite pieces of roughneck art in the form of photography and Chip has much, much more of the same:
The following photo, taken for Cabot Oil & Gas, has also always captured my imagination because it illustrates the nature of much of the work, in the case on the natural gas delivery system:
And, of course, there is this outstanding photo by Chris Acker, another friend and guest blogger here at NaturalGasNOW. Everybody is looking to Spring now but this winter shot is really spectacular:
Roughneck art in the form of paintings includes this Post Office mural entitled the “Oil Fields of Graham” from 1939. It was painted by Alexandre Hogue, University of Tulsa Art Professor, Emeritus and captures the multi-faceted nature of the industry; from drilling and pumping to pipelines and from capitalist to engineers to roughnecks.
And, then, there are the graphic illustrations. Along that line, I asked my grandson Rance Shepstone who is a graphic designer with a major engineering firm, an artist and a superb photographer to to come up with something to help us celebrate #WorldShaleEnergyDay. Here’s what he came up with and I must say, I’m very proud of him!
