Here is something a lot different than I normally paint. A long time ago I did a lot portraits but had not been so inclined for many years but got the urge and thought I would try some again. This gentleman is a participant at a Living History event I attend during the summer. Many people spend a tremendous amount of time and money researching and recreating the persona of individuals from our early history as a country. This one has recreated an Eastern Woodland Indian in a very striking manner. I enjoy these events and all of the unique individuals that attend them. There will be everything from various Native Americans to all facets of the Militaries that were active during the early years of this nation. My wife and I often set up at these events and enjoy doing the school days where school age children come out for a day of hands on history. I portray a Windsor Chair maker and my wife sets up as a spinner, spinning the wool from the Icelandic sheep we raise.
The painting is 8x10 inches and available for purchase but will not ship until dry and varnished which will be 4-6 weeks. Price is $145
