I grew up in the Sand Hills near the “Rosebud Indian Reservation”, just outside Valentine, Nebraska.
It was a magical place and time for me …as I have mentioned in other postings, I was surrounded by the Native American people, their culture, colors, and music.
The women and girls always held my rapt attention.
To me, these women were visions of beauty and always held a quiet mysterious energy.
They kept alive that feeling in a little girl’s mind that they were all the iconic “Maiden Indian Princess” or the “Chief’s Daughter”.
I can thank Hollywood for helping with that illusion with all the John Wayne movies I watched.
Old Movies and memories provided me with endless images for my continuing Wrapped In Tradition Series.
Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped stretched canvas.
Thanks for viewing my art.
