Wow. Time flies by! I am madly painting now for the art shows in March, here in Great Falls, MT. I have a show room at the Western Masters Art Show & Sale and am in both auctions, the Western Masters and the C.M. Russell Museum Auction – The Russell . I thought I would now post the painting I have done for the Russell Auction.
This model is a Navajo man, now living in Wyoming. I met him at the Artists Ride and was impressed with the person he seemed to be, and of course the model he was. You may recognize him in paintings done by other western artists as well. That can be a dilemma for us all – noticeably using some of the same models, but I couldn’t bear to change his looks when painting him. The title I hope does not require interpretation. “Of Two Worlds” is an oil, 30 x 24. Thank you Thomas for being a great model!
