Seeks the Sun

Seeks the Sun, oil on linen, 18 x 24
American Indians painted their faces for many reasons: Protection from the sun, ceremonial, personal recognition and others

Here, he wears white paint, white being the color of light, life and the Southeast - where the Sun rises with life-renewing power. The heavy white paint or clay is a prayer for long life.

The lines of flesh represent the straight roads that lead to the Great Spirit
