Lakota Pride

Drybrush Watercolor
11" x 14"
This piece started out as a simple composition of a single figure standing in the tall prairie grass. It soon became a major work of art in a somewhat small format. Sometimes it seems as though the painting takes over and just paints itself.
The wardrobe, shield and spear are authentic. The painted design on the tipi is an exact depiction painted by a Native artist two hundred and eight years ago.
