When I first saw this painting, I knew I had to have it. It was from a small gem series. At Studios in the Park, in Paso Robles. When the small gem sale was on, people are not revealed the artist until they purchase it. The technique that was used for this one was not done by a beginner. Plus, I just love that the emotion of the Native American is so poignant. Look at him, his stoic look, and his wisdom just seems to ooze off the canvas. His chiseled features and the shadowing of his features. He is magnificent, and the painting is too. I just love it!
