Spirit And Dignity-Native American Woman by 

Oil painting on board. 38cms x 50cms. The inspiration for this painting came from a very old black and white photo of a beautiful Native American woman. I was drawn to the dignity and quiet strength of the image. After doing much research, I decided which colours, clothing, background, etc. would best describe what I wanted to say in this painting……a tribute to the strength of character of the Native American Woman. I hope I’ve succeeded.
