Navajo Woman...Long Walk Home... by Susan Bergstrom

Navajo Woman...Long Walk Home... by 

I fell in love with this image … I asked the original RB photographer Aneta Adamkiewicz … about the photograph…

It represented to me the journey the Native American Woman through the generations…

I contacted her to see if I might reproduce in a drawing for my Native American Woman Series.

I love the Southwest, I live in the desert of Nevada/Arizona and I see beauty everywhere I turn…
I started my Native American Woman Series to further project my vision of this culture and people. My studio is located in Mesquite, Nevada…I have been teaching painting and drawing for over 30 years.

Original Pastel and Prismacolor Pencil drawing.

This piece is composed on artist cardstock weight, low tooth paper. I prefer a minimal tooth paper so I have the blending ability. Sprayed with a final professional protective fixitive.
18″×28″ in unframed size.
As of 5-17-10 this piece has had 2108 views.

Thank You for viewing my art.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.

    susan….this really stirs the emotions within me… have such a gift for capturing the essence of a person and their situation…i wish i could find better words to describe how your work touches me…..this is beautiful….

  • Thank you so much my friend on the mountain…I changed everything but the color of her dress as I kept seeing the women out here who walk from the Res. into town, and they won’t take a ride from you even if you ask…even the old women. I was going to call it “My New Socks” as I just loved the stripped sock she has on…Thank you so much again…
