Moon Gazer II American Indian

Moon Gazer II
, 60 x 40, oil on canvas

I had a request from one of my galleries to create a large painting. This is the results.

It was common for hair locks to be attached to 'War Shirts'of the Plains Indians. The hair may be that of a family member, taken in battle from an enemy or be animal hair. Whatever the case, it is a symbol of personal honor

I will have this painting in the American Plains Artist show this year.

The show info seems to be missing from their website so I'll have to give the date and location later when I can find it.
