In addition to the fact that this is a typically good George Quaintance painting, Lake Apache has two interesting features.  First, the blond cowboy (and a number of  blond cowboys in other Quaintance paintings) is based on the artist himself.  In fact, as he aged and lost his hair, he became known for wearing blond wigs to maintain the look.  Second, the other cowboy was Zaro Rossi.
