In Disguise


In Disguise is a commissioned painting. It is 36 x 30, oil on canvas. The Plains Indian warrior wears a Wolf Headdress with eagle feathers. His buffalo robe shows a painting of two warriors in battle.


The buffalo robe had many uses. One of them was for a disguise. When a rider was on horse back covered with the robe he resembled a buffalo when seen from a distance.

The wolf headdress served the same purpose. The headdress was often used by scouts to disguise themselves.

Forever Brave- oil painting


Forever Brave, 12" x 9", Oil on board

This little guy is one of my favorite vintage ceramic figures . He’s a little warrior with a tomahawk.

He is standing in front of a wool blanket. Can you tell that I love the color Red?

As I’ve said before, I love painting the different textures. The roughness of the wool, the shiny hardest of the ceramic and the satin reflections on the table all come together to make a nice contrast.
