With a medley of twilight colors, this watercolor has a haunting, meditative beauty.
The Plains warrior is depicted in a naturalistic way, but there is a lovely, dream-like quality to the painting that is compelling.
The billowing clouds and swirling water, beneath the rocky outcrop on which the figure stands, are echoed in the folds and designs of his blanket.
The static pose of the figure, against the rounded lines of the background, exudes serenity.
Cool blues, and the painted purple frame against the soft grey background, also create a mood of quiet contemplation.
This is a beautiful work by the renowned Osage artist Gina Gray, who sadly passed away at the end of 2014.
One more beauty that was hiding in our stacks!
It is matted with archival materials, and framed, all ready to hang and enjoy.
