Quote in a interview...
'When words failed me... I painted... When I painted, the words and what I wanted to say came to life... Today, I have only these pictures without silence; to express what I want to say... Everything else would sound less than what was written in this life... I am a pound of clay, a living tide along the shore of an ocean spray. I choose to live in the Native Way. Ancient are these painted sculptures created by the paintings from a warriors tongue. Every prayerful step on this journey never done. It all started by the river of mud and clay... The sculptured mind, in vision of a soft and sensitive piece laying close to an old wound'
Some of the paintings are over forty years old and sometimes I would tell people if you want this painting just like it is you may want to buy it right now; because, tomorrow, I might want to paint some more on it.... I will live strong for many years with these paintings. A lot of good medicine has been shared with them. I lit the smudge pot and the smoke comes... The Grandfathers smile knowing I am home. I am painting.
