Smooth Language

Pamela Phelps

Phillipsport, United States

Artist's Description

“How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right.”
~Black Hawk, Sauk

Composed in Photoshop using various filters in Topaz, rendering a newly composed background, and bringing the characters back into the forefront. Slight ghosting has been added in Dreamy filters.

Original image is a vintage painting by Alfred Jacob Miller, depicting the white man bringing home his squaw.
