It opens September 17th. The show is in a small space and painting sizes were limited to an 18x14 max. This is titled "Quill work," and it is 14x18."
I have had a long bout of brain fog, which really settled in mid February and became debilitating for several months. It made it impossible to focus on anything, and it hit me hard painting wise. We are trying to find the source of the issue, likely celiac, or another related autoimmune problem. I went on a special autoimmune diet protocol in late May and along with herbal and vitamin supplements (turmeric, resveratrol,etc) my brain is coming alive again. This piece was painted in July, and I am back on the painting wagon as I write this up.

Ferdinand Pichard, a hybrid perpetual, it blooms more frequently, but has stubby stems. I have been on a quest for striped roses.

"Courtship on two sided blanket." Some of the plains tribes used these divided color blankets during the courtship between two potential love matches. This painting was done partly in front of the camera for the online school at Watts Atelier. I worked some sections at home.

Above is a 9x12 oil on linen panel titled "Mahogany."
Cheyenne Red Shield Headdress."
This is a bit larger, 12x16 oil on linen canvas piece title "Dolly's Hair." This young model wanted to yank out the doll's hair, but I tried to paint her treating it gently. That's the kind of kid I was, ripping apart my dolls and toys to see what they were made of

I also painted a piece for my new nephew of a circus bear.
