Gallery Search

Dream Within a Dream, 36 x 36, oil on canvas

As you may know,  few of the galleries that represent my art work have closed in the past year. I am now beginning a search for an additional gallery to sell my American Indian paintings.

In the past, my  best results have come through recommendations from other artists and my collectors. 

Your help and suggestions will be appreciated.

Assiniboine Amulet

Assiniboine Amulet, 8 x 10, oil on canvas
Small leather medicine pouches or amulets were made by the Plains Indians and worn around the neck or attached to clothing or shields. These bags could be plain or decorated with beads, shells etc. It's what was inside the bag that was most important. These small bags would contain protection, luck, and healing power. Stones, feathers, metal, animals claws or teeth, and herbs may be placed in these bags. Each was personal to its owner and would contain items that were significant to the individual.
