Cheyenne Elder

Cheyenne Elder

Between 1900 and 1930, Edward Curtis traveled deep into Indian territories and lived among dozens of Native tribes. He captured the authentic ways of life of over 80 Native cultures. One of his photographs was the reference for this acrylic mono-color. I see this old man, thinking that his way of life that he knew in his early life was gone forever, and would never return.

The size of this original is painted on a 16X20X1 stretched canvas. It is a mono-color using only raw umber acrylic paint
