I Arise from the Dark of Night - oil painting


I Arise from the Dark of Night is 30" x 40", oil on canvas. The colors of the painting are almost monochromatic earth colors. The title comes from an American Indian story that tells of the Raven rescuing the stolen sun  and returning it to the sky. 

The Warrior wears feathers from many birds. His shield is painted with a bird image. He wears white stripes of paint on his face.
