I did not intend to paint a series of Native American dancers but it happened. It started as an exercise in trying to capture texture in watercolor so I started accumulating images at powwows just to be challenged by the shells and feathers and beads and metal that make up the beautiful regalia so prevalent there. Sometimes I would draw on location. One painting led to another as I learned more about the Native Americans and their dance, particularly the Cherokee who actually lived on our land here in Ocoee, TN, an area rich in their history. Over the past 20 years my Frank and I have studied that history extensively. The result is this every growing collection of dancers and artisans.
