Acrylic, 11x14 canvas board. 2nd of my Cherokee Indian Trilogy paintings. My husband has Cherokee Indian heritage.

These hills are in Osage County, Okla. The Buffalo in this painting are just spirits of what used to be, however, the Bison are making a "comeback" in some areas.

:wave: Beautiful painting, Marilyn! The composition is excellent and you've detailed nicely your Mama and baby as the focal point(s). The scene expands beautifully - wonderful clouds/sky and landscape. Awesome! :D

Thank you, Arl,
I will add the third, "Cherokee Dancer", as soon as I can get it resized to fit WC.

Time out for me to change into my "Grandma hat":)
