Commissioned Painting, 30 x 30, oil on linen
I used this model several years ago for a painting. A collector saw the painting but missed out on purchasing it. The beautiful model made enough of an impact that the image stayed in his mind. I was recently commissioned to create this painting using the same young American Indian woman.

This Plains Indian wears eagle feathers, has his face painted and wears a Trade Blanket or Wearing Robe from the early 1900's.
