Napayshni – (nah-PAY-shnee) is a Sioux name meaning “courageous and strong.”
This is the first in a series. I plan to paint more animal images with Native American influences. Most of my inspiration for this piece came from Western movies and Native American music. The two movies that really had an impact on me growing up were “Little Big Man” with Dustin Hoffman and “Jeremiah Johnson” with Robert Redford.
This painting was created using Painter and Photoshop. The final image is 24×30 and 300 dpi.
