Southwestern Stillife Painting

 "Earth and Fiber"
20" x 24"
Oil on Panel
No. 3
In this Southwestern Still Life Oil Painting, "Spring Solstice," an original oil on panel, I was interested in creating an artwork that reflected objects of the ancient Indians of the American Southwest in a setting shawed some of the fine masoary which I had seen at Chaco canyon. The basket is old Jicarilla, the Indian pottery was loaned to me from a private collection. I drew my inspiration for the imaginary setting from having visited Chaco Canyon in New Mexico. The ancient Indians must have had the luxury of enough time to have developed their craft to such a state of fine art.
