2016 IN REVIEW


Thank you to everyone for your support this year. I was able to see many old friends as well as make some new ones. I have started on some new adventures and ended others. This year has definitely seen many changes!

WHAT'S NEW

This year I began a collaboration with a few new galleries. Two of them happen to be at the Phoenix airport - Mosaic and Indigenous. Stop by if you are passing through Sky Harbor and check out the latest Raven and Native American art adorning the walls.


My art will now permanently reside in a new museum in Mississippi dedicated to the history of local indigenous peoples. This was a very exciting project for me. Below is one of the images of the Mound story of creation.



The Choctaw Nation presented "Uncle Willie's Birth" with the Best of Show and purchased it for their museum


I now have many of my raven art in a new 20x20 format! Oops, one of them already sold!


If you happen to be in the Prescott area, please visit the special five month exhibit "The People Speak" featuring many native artists past and present. A dozen of my original works are in this exhibit including one of my painted buffalo skulls.





AND AGAIN THANK YOU to everyone for your support this year. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you in 2017. My next show will be the Heard Museum Indian Market in March in downtown Phoenix. Hope to see you there!


I ALMOST FORGOT!!  -  My loyal assistant Jack insisted his photo be included. His input has been invaluable and I could not have done it without him. He is obviously well compensated for his efforts.

NEW AWARDS AND UPCOMING EVENTS



Greetings! This month at the annual Heard Museum Indian Market  I was very happy to receive a first place ribbon for my oil painting "Uncle Willie's Birth". This painting is very dear to my heart, as it represents my great grand mother Luann Nale standing in front of her son Willie's birth certificate.  

For the past few months I have been working on a series of Choctaw paintings, using old documents and records using my ancestors as the foreground. You can see more of these paintings at Clarksonart.com
