Just beautiful and so moving. My wife is Cherokee, and though I have not yet been to The Trail of Tears, I have heard her stories of her visits. Thank you for sharing!

Laura Grisham replied:

If you ever get a chance to visit Tahlequah, OK it will open your eyes to the terrible things that our country did to our Native Americans,

Wonderful painting Laura, would love to see the original!

Laura Grisham replied:

I would love to re-shoot potos of the original since I've not purchased a much better camera. It was a very interesting my description and you'll understand why. Thanks for your nice words....Laura

Laura Grisham replied:

Ooopps...I meant to say I have a MUCH better camera now!

I wish I could see the original painting--this is stunning!

Laura Grisham replied:

The size of the original made it come alive...

What a touching and well written "Comment," Laura. It's a great companion -- and addition -- to the painting! I love this series. And it shows your abilities with a great variety of styles as well as interests -- rather I should say "fascinations." Thank you, with these and others for bringing this beauty and its -- your -- emotional backgrounds to each of us and to the world. Peace, etc., Bruce


Laura Grisham replied:

You are IS a very emotional piece! Thank you for "seeing" it as I wished for it to be seen... Blessings, Laura

I am both HONORED and THRILLED you have chosen to feature this emotional piece on the "Tribal Groups" page. Although I am of Native American heritage, we have been unable to offer the proof needed to become official members of the Cherokee Nation. This painting expresses my sorrow in not only the horrendous treatment of the Cherokee during the "Trail of Tears", but also the sorrow I felt at the death of beloved father. He would be so proud. Blessings, Laura

Congratulations! Your art work has been chosen to be featured on the Tribes Group home page!
