He was a long-time resident of Paradise Valley, Arizona. Of this artist, Bob DeWitt of Galesburg, Illinois wrote to "Hello, I just bought a Stan Ekman original & have uncovered some information that you may wish to include in you biography. Mr. Ekman actually had two Saturday Evening Post covers to his credit. The Jan. 6, 1945 was a rear view of a man bowling. You have that painting on your site as one that sold at auction. The only other Post cover that he did was for May 20, 1944, and had a small child with a tooth ache watching the other kids play outside through his bedroom window. My source is "Covers of the Saturday Evening Post" by Jan Cohn. I have also attached the image of the original oil on panel that I purchased. It was done in the early 1980's and is titled," Shepherd of Monument Valley. " It was originally purchased by the late Lorraine Mullberger of the Miller brewing family of Scottsdale Arizona." Source
