I am Dancing to the Voice of My Father, Thunder
10" x 15", Oil and Acrylic on canvas

Spring time is the rebirth of life to Mother Earth and to all living beings. In many First Nation traditions, the sound of thunder signals the beginning of spring and the sound of life returning.  Lighting is the visual power of life sent from the heavens. Four flowers blooming with blue backgrounds represent the sacredness of the four stages of life and the holiness of the heavens and the life of mankind.As decorated horses are associated with a Warrior’s honor, bravery, accomplishments and divine protective powers, a Warrioir too celebrates life and the powers that bring life.

Crow Moon Pony
8" x 12", Oil on canvas
*private collector, Nixa MO
Crow moon pony represents a tribute to the last full moon of the end of winter before the beginning of spring; the reentering of life back to mother earth. A melting blanket of white, uncovers mother earth and releases her from her sleep, and the sound of cawing crows during this season annunciates the planting season for Native American plains tribes. The Dancing pony symbolizes the celebratory beginning of the return of life to mother earth. The background is designed with traditional crow or Apsáalooke tribal designs and colors. The Crow nation call themselves, Apsáalooke which means "children of the large-beaked bird." White men later misinterpreted the word as "Crow," a name given to them by their neighboring tribe, the Hidatsa.
