After reading a book about Sitting Bull and seeing some photos of him I was moved to paint a portrait of him. Behind him, a background of natural dark green, light green, white and honey brown twirl around and up. The painting has a width of 20 inches and a height of 20 inches with a depth of 1.5 inches (20 x 20 x 1.5), making it a nice medium-sized square piece that should fit in a variety of places. The edges of the canvas are black but there is some spillage and dripping over from the front, so depending on the style you want, you may want to frame it.

I like to paint animals, landscapes or abstract paintings with bold colors in different styles. I become fixated on certain themes for periods of time - cats, frogs, abstract circles, before switching over to something else for awhile, kachina figures maybe, but I like to revisit themes, each time it is different. I have some Native American blood and am mostly influenced by native art of the US and outside.
