My latest painting

 "Untitled" until further notice.  24"x 18"
I fell in love with this regalia, so beautiful with intricately woven feathers into the headdress and cape.  With so many of them similar in color, I had to focus on the nuances in each feather to make them come alive visually, as if they weren't already stunning to me! 
Here's some process photos.  :0)

Cousin Tom is honoring our Elders by continuing the tradition of song and dance of our Chumash family. His regalia is just beautiful. Your painting of his regalia is honoring our Elders through the magic of your work. You are so talented. I'm looking forward to your native series.

Hi Vera! It was so nice to see you at the powwow and honored to meet Tom, what an inspiration! Can't wait to paint my newly found cousins!
