Known best for his powerful portraits of Plains warriors, this gifted, award-winning artist shows his more contemplative side in this equally masterful, but more serene, watercolor. As in all his work, the inspiration is his wife’s Kiowa heritage.Gentle dusk has come; the evening star is visible high above the encampment. The sky is cloudless; there is no wind. All is calm and peaceful, and people have gathered around their home fires. In one teepee, a group is enjoying the dramatic rendition by a figure, standing and gesticulating, as he relates a favorite story. With complete control of the medium, the artist has created a scene of universal appeal. Everyone has experienced a moment like this at some time, when the world seems to hold its breath, and all is tranquillity and comfort. The lovely rendering of the firelit teepees fading into the dusk, contrasts with the solidity of the figures, and the foreground. Ready to be matted and framed to fit your style, this is a work of unusual delicacy by this renowned artist and advocate for Native causes.
