PREPARING FOR THE PHIPPEN

This weekend will be full of fun and lots of art here in Prescott. I will be on the square during the Memorial Day Holiday May 25, 26 and 27. Come by to see the Quick Draw and Auction at 2:00 on Saturday. I will attempt to create a painting in one hour! Some of my new works being offered at the Phippen Art Show this weekend.....

"Vision Quest"
18 x 18 Oil on Board with shadow box frame
Based on a photo of Medicine Crow -  an Absaroke.
$500 

When a person is on a vision quest, he must have certain attitudes and intentions for his prayers to be sincere, and then he must carry these over into his daily life. - Indian Spirit, 2006 World Vision

"Sun Dance"
20 x 20 Oil on Board with shadow box frame
Based on a photo of American Horse - an Oglala Lakota
$525

The Sun Dance is the greatest ceremony that the Oglala do. It is a sacred ceremony in which all people have a part. - Indian Spirit, 2006 World Vision

"Last Gift"
20 x 20 Oil on Board with shadow box frame
Based on a photo by White Whirlwind - an Oglala Lakota
$525

The attitude of the Indian toward death, the test and background of life, is entirely consistent with his character and philosophy. Death has no terror for him; he meets it with simplicity and perfect calm, seeking only an honorable end as his last gift to his family and descendants. -  Indian Spirit, 2006 World Vision

Untitled
39 x 25 graphite drawing with colored pencil
Drawing of Eric LaBlanc

This drawing was just framed and then photographed, so there is a slight glare.  It is under museum quality conservation glass and accented with a double mat. I am going to enter it in the Phippen Museum's Drawing competition.  Come by and see it in person! Unfortunately I did not finish my oil painting so it will not be in the competition this year.
