Redwing - American indian Still life

Redwing is 30 x 24, oil on canvas.
This painting shows a mixture of old and newer icons of the American Indian. There is pottery, corn, beads, blanket, a kachina as well as a turn of the century piece of sheet music "Redwing".

This painting was awarded second place at the Hubbard Museum's Biennale Grande in Ruidoso, NM.

My favorite bit in this painting is the transparent tape holding the sheet music to the wall
