Whispering Spirit

Whispering Spirit, 30 x 40, oil on linen

This Plains Indian wears eagle feathers, shells and silver . His face is painted white with a brown hand print.
The hand painted on the face is a Coup Mark, a sign of bravery. To be first to touch the enemy was regarded as the bravest deed of all. It was even a point of bravado for a single warrior to rush in among the enemy and strike one with quirt, coup stick or gun before attempting to fire, thus risking his own life.

This is the second of three Striped Shawl paintings that I'm working on.

I love the way the stripes and fold interact

Brother of the Sky

Brother of the Sky, oil on linen, 48 x 24

I was looking at my photos of paintings that I had created in the past and remembered how much I liked my Striped Shawl paintings. Time to paint a new one!

Actually, I started 3 Striped Shawl paintings and this is the first one completed.
