As I painted this I got as lost in these lupines as much as this young girl did. It was too easy to get focused in on the details of these wild blooms and so it was a constant fight to find the bigger shapes that they were forming. It’s a small painting but I find that small paintings take just as much mental energy and skill as larger paintings if not more.
If anyone out there gets the catalog for this show you will also get to see this painting half finished since the deadline caused me to submit it too soon.

Sky People

30″ x 22″

I’ve done many other Native American paintings but every time I do one I usually am told that it’s new for me to paint this subject. Because my work is set in the late 1800’s on the American Frontier, I have never seen it as strange to portray the native people of this land as well.  This particular painting was inspired by my encounter with this mother and her daughter in South Dakota near the Cheyenne River. I noticed that the mother was gazing into the beautiful cloud formations and went over to her and asked her what she was looking for because she seemed to be searching. She looked at me and said “sky people”. In my research I have come upon a common theme in Indian lore of their creation stories involving sky people. I felt compelled to capture her  solemn moment of searching the skies.
