LDS Pioneer Art - "Prairie Angels" by Leon Parson

I was looking for LDS Pioneer art online and I stumbled upon "Prairie Angels", a remarkable painting of two blonde haired pioneer girls standing beside a covered wagon. One is holding a doll and both wear somber expressions. The painting was done by Leon Parson, well known wildlife artist who has created a few religious pieces as well.

This piece is unique in it's close-up focus on the children's expressions as they are waiting by a wagon crossing the plains.
