This is a nine year old Navajo girl I painted in 1983 in Gallup, New Mexico. To me, her direct gaze reveals the pride and dignity of the Navajo nation. I still specialize in these types of character studies, and this is typical of many of the pieces I produced during my career as an artist.
No prints available

He is good at art.
He lies down to do a painting.

A lot of people sit down to do a painting.
But he lies down.
He lies down to think about the painting
He will later sit down to do.

Before long he sees a clear image
Of the painting he will attempt.

The painting will involve
No paper or canvas,
No charcoal, pencil, or paint.

The painting will be 3D rather than 2D.
It will be performance art.

The painting will involve an artist,
Lying down on the floor,
Contemplating a painting
He is about to do.

He wonders how
He might secure the services
Of an actor to feature in the painting.

Then he decides
To save himself
Time and money.
He will do the painting himself.

Hello friend, Trystn here. I like the Indian painting, and I really dig the one to the left of this text box I am typing in.

I look forward to seeing more of your work!
