Louis Bierman was born October 8, 1930 on a farm in Nebraska. He was a man of the Earth, a Farmer forever, up until a week before his passing on May 23, 2020. He served his country, loved his wife, worked along side her more than 50 years, 2 children, his church, community, polka music, and dancing.

I am a Wyoming native currently living in Casper, Wy after having moved from Sheridan to work in the oilfield for 10 years. I draw images near and dear to my life experiences. This piece I have selected to enter was completed with a No. 2 Mechanical Pencil. It is representative of the patriotism, dedication, strength of character, and commitment that this country is founded on.
