History: The position of drum major originated in the British Army with the Corps of Drum in 1650. With the arrival of military concert bands and pipe bands around the 18th Century, the position of drum major was adapted to those ensembles. In the British Army, a drum major holds the rank of sergeant, staff sergeant or color sergeant. The insignia is 3 inverted chevrons surmounted by a drum.

In the artist’s opinion, Joe Hosch exemplifies the quintessential drum sergeant. Standing over 7 feet tall in full regalia, Joe strikes an unforgettable, regal pose as he dominates the scene marching before a band.

This painting was done from artist’s study photographs done of the subject.

Inversnaid Falls drops from the “hanging valley” of Loch Arklet into the main glaciated trench holding Loch Lomond. This waterfall by the West Highland Way is associated with the poet Gerard Manly Hopkins who, in his poem, “Inversnaid,” wrote ‘Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.’

Loch Lomond from above Tarbet

Original: Oil on Canvas 16” x 20”
Reproduction: Unframed Print, Giclee on Canvas 16” x 20”
Price: $185.00 (U.S.) Plus Shipping (Shipping Weight: 15oz.)

Overview: Tarbet lies on the west shore of Loch Lomond, Scotland, two-thirds of the way towards the northern end. The name origin is the Gaelic word Tairbeart, meaning esthmus, literally, “draw-boat.” This comes from the fact that Loch Lomond at Tarbet lies just a mile and a half from Loch Long, a sea loch, at Arrochar. The low valley connecting Tarbet and Arrochar was used for portage of boats and frequented by Viking raiders who dragged longships between the two allowing them to raid and plunder the shores and islands of Loch Lomond.

This painting is from a vantage point above Tarbet and was done from photographic studies, artist's sketches and observation.
