Wow !! This is incredible.

Thank you, Myrna for your comment!

This one is possibly my favorite... and that says a lot, considering the depth of your other works.

Thank you, John. She is a very special lady, she is an author, a muscian (singer) and cares deeply about her heritage! She is Lakota and she actually inspired the whole series so it was only right to honor her in a portrait and include her in the series. Thanks again!

I forgot to mention she is signing the Lord's Prayer in her native tongue in this image.

Thank you very much. I give you my blog address to see. Friendships France.

Thank you, Fabien I will look at the link!

hello I am French, I have a blog on First Nations. I have created a section on the painters who make paintings on the Indians .I put some of your work on my pages. Do you agree? if you do not want me to remove the article. thank you to answer me.

Hello, Fabien! How wonderful that you like my image enough to put up on your website. It is fine as long as the my name, my website (is listed under my picture) and the woman in the image is posted on your pages as credit.

Artist's Description

In the On Sacred Ground Series, Ricardo was inspired by a conversation with a friend, singer and author Bonnie Jo Hunt, in which she was saying Native Americans believe that everything stems from Mother Earth. That all things are connected and spring forth from the ground - a symbiosis between the land and the people. The On Sacred Ground Series uses the background image of the sandstone caves of Arizona. Here Bonnie Jo is singing the Lord's Prayer in sign language. One of her songs is also featured in the latest Ron Fricke & Mark Magidson film called Samsara, which in Sanskrit means "continuous flow" the repeating cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth - very fitting for the concept of Curvismo. Is now in a private collection in Albuquerque, NM.
