Pete is called “the master of the miniature” for his colorful, wonderfully detailed, realistic portrayals of Hopi kachina dancers, in a very small scale.
This rainbow striped clown is stepping out with a pail (of water?) and a ladle, perhaps about to create a rainbow?
Every element is meticulously rendered, with the textures of kilt, hair, medicine bag, pail and ladle, all beautifully differentiated.

The water color background echoes the sun-and-water palette of gold and blues.
Ready to hang, with archival matting and framing.
Bring a rainbow to your wall. Or table top, or mantel, or shelf, or….
