Water Blessing showcases the buffalo as a symbol or icon of strength, resiliency, traditions and blessings. The light blue skull, symbolizes sacredness.  It is designed with red around the eyes to denote the eyesight of our Creator on all of life.  Four moons on the forehead keep the generations in our thoughts and prayers.  Behind the skull, the circle of life shadows these gifts in yellow to represent enlightenment.

The Voice of the Painted Bull
14" x 18", Oil on canvas with cowry shells

The Buffalo was a source of subsistence as well as spiritual inspiration to Northern Plains tribes.  It was used as a centerpiece of many Northern Plains ceremonies as well as being a symbol to represent the longevity and endurance of the First Nation People.Painting the buffalo was a ceremonial process and represents a divine power that communicates though the owner as well as the people.  The buffalo skull is painted in blue to represent the heavens and all of creation and the red represents the blood of the people.  The skull is divided by a lightening bolt to symbolize the power of our Creator.  The lines that radiate towards the skull denote the four nations recognizing its power and significance.
