Re: "Finding the White Man's Marks"

A group of Apsaalooke (Crow) men in the northern Rockies finds signs of intrusion carved into their trees. Regalia, bobcat hide quiver, lance, horse markings, beadwork patterns and feather positions are historically accurate.

Hi Matt, and welcome to the forum! Wow, what a piece! I love studying history and am a big fan of people to stick to historically accurate details. You can imagine I was delighted by this painting. It's got a wonderful mood, stunning detail, and a great story to tell. Well done! I hope we see more of your work.

Re: "Finding the White Man's Marks"

Great story telling. Check out Aron fra Kangeq , the great Greenlandic Inuit painter. I think you might enjoy his work.

Re: "Finding the White Man's Marks"

Hi Matt-- I liked your blog-- wondering if you are in OKC or Rocky mountains because a lot of your work seems to be of mountain country.
I find your work very good, but there is some measurement problem that I cannot put a finger on. Is there some "warping" in the camera lens?

Of course, pictures of art never have the same impact than the art itself does.

Re: "Finding the White Man's Marks"

I'm in Oklahoma, but I travel the the mountains for subject matter. I begin work on location and finish in a studio. I also hire historians and models from western states to assure accuracy, especially in my Indian works. And there might be some warping, I'm not sure. I can say that the original piece is accurate to the anatomy of the models and horses though.
