I think I found it...

July 18, 2018

Ever since I painted first Crazy Horse I, almost a year ago, I have been drawn more and more to the idea of Western Art. As I paint buffalo and Native Americans, I want to know more about the actual natives that inhabited this continent before it was invaded and they were killed or herded onto reservations. So I am doing more research on the indigenous people of the San Francisco Bay area right now, the Ohlone, and I plan to do more research to make my art more authentic. Indigenous people and animals...that's where I am headed for now. In the meantime, I painted a triptych of natives in the style I have grown to like a lot. I want them to appear to be dissolving or disappearing into the canvas, the way that the real people are disappearing due to our impact on them.
