My Gathering of Native Americans and Animals

I have been painting Native Americans and a variety of large animals, Highland Cows, Dairy Cows, Longhorns, Bisons, Horses and many large animals for many years. I try to relate how these colorful Native Americans and great animals have inspired me when I paint. Both indigenous and animal eyes show much about their personalities and their harmony with the natural world they inhabit. The Native dancers at Pow Wows great a color palette all their own as
they dance across the floor to the beat of a drum. I hope this portfolio reflects my respect and passion for both human and animal spirits.
