The Dog That Eats - Crow
Painting - Acrylic On Stretched Canvas
Series of First people, Native American Warrior Chiefs, holy men, headmen, medicine Men and shamans (a misused term) and signers with their marks of Treaties between the United States and various nations. This is Dog That Eats, Head man of the Crow and signatory of the 1825 Treaty. Each one an original acrylic on stretched cotton canvas. Variant larger sizes on display at studio, and soon at Art Trends Gallery, Chesterfield, MO. I began this themed series with the intent of bringing attention, in a thought provoking way, to "our" Native American brethren and their plight. Each work is bright and vibrant in color, with heavy texture, and a simple, almost childlike brush stroke finish. After a visit to Nashville, and BB Kings Blues Bar, I was inspired by a self taught "folk" artist prominently displayed there. I have mixed archaic and modern (peace sign) features with reckless abandon, not to offend, but to illicit an emotion. Enjoy, dislike or reserve opinion......either way, I have accomplished my goal. Thank you.
