When the Moon Rises - American Indian


When the Moon Rises, 36 x 30, oil on canvas

I have many, many books on the American Indian which I use as references for my paintings. The shirt in this painting is based on a photograph taken by Carl Moon in 1910.

This painting is available from me, K. Henderson Studio for the next week or so.
