THUNDER
 
 
Original Oil on Canvas SOLD to Private Collector, Las Vegas, Nevada

"Thunder"   represents  the  strength  and  beauty  of  the  mighty  war  pony of the
American  Indian.    Both  the war pony and  the  buffalo  pony  were highly prized.
History  tells  us  that  the  Indians of  the  Southwest  were first to obtain the  horse.
They  later  spread  into  the  plains.   Some  say  the horses were left behind  by the
Spaniard  Coronado.    Others  say  they  came  from  the ranches  in the Southwest
and spread northward  through trade channels.  They may also have been obtained
through  raids  on   settlements.

WAITING TO DANCE
Original Oil on Canvas SOLD by Navarro Gallery, Sedona, Arizona

Kwaian,   a  little Paiute boy patiently holds his dance staff while waiting for his
dance  to  start.   Indian  dance  steps are  sometimes  difficult,  but  he's  been
practicing  and he's anxious to dance.  Like all Native American children he has
learned to dance early in life.  There are dances for almost every occaision...to
bring  rain,  good  crops, celebrate the seasons and many more.  Religious and
ceremonial  dances  are  a  family tradition handed down from one generation
to the next.

      WELCOMING A FRIEND
 Original Oil on Canvas SOLD to Private Collector, Las Vegas, Nevada
 The  reference  for  this  painting  was  captured during  my trip to South Dakota
where  I  photographed  the  Sioux and other tribes.  In  painting  this  particular
painting, I  changed my  traditional palette  of using  cool colors  of  red, yellow
and  blue  in the shadows  and red,  yellow and blue warm colors in the sunlight
to using  warm colors in the shadows and cool colors in the sunlight.  This gave
the glow I was striving to accomplish.

   WHOA! BLACKFEET
 Original Oil on Canvas SOLD to Private Collector, Las Vegas, Nevada


The  reference  material  for  this  painting is  from one  of the photos I
shot in  South  Dakota while visiting with the different Plains tribes  of
Native  American   Indians.    Before   the   Blackfeet and  other Plains
Indians had  horses,  they  used  dogs.  They  refer to  this  time  as  the
"Dog Days".   After  discovering   horses,  they  sometimes  referred  to
 them  as  "Sacred Dogs".   A  family  rank  was  largely  determined by
 their possession of horses and  gave their  children the  opportunity  to 
be  skilled  riders  at an early age.  Seeing this little girl on her horse, I
found this  still to be true.  This painting is framed in a  southwest dark
beige  wood with gold leaf inserts, linen liner and gold  lip.  Historical

YOUNG SENTRY, NAVAJO
Original Oil on Canvas SOLD to a Private Collector, Las Vegas, Nevada

In  the early  days,  the Navajo were much like the  Apache and  were a warlike people.
Here the  artist paints  a young Navajo  boy standing  guard  near his home  in Arizona.
It  was a perfect setting with the rock in shadow behind him and the sunlight streaming
it's brilliant rays lighting up my subject.
