Acrylic on canvas - Original Size: 36” x 18” - 1978-Personal Collection.  
This is one of my larger paintings and was a study of the Seminoles and their colorful, traditional attire. Certainly with the contrast of young and old and the individual style of clothing of all three provides a good contrast. I really enjoy using acrylic paint has it dries fast, can be layered for a textured effect (the background), and is allows me to use the dry-brush technique.   I have an aunt, Etta Mae James that resembles the young girl in blue. I enjoy capturing the expressions of facial features.  Her children noticed the resemblance when they saw my painting. However, it was pure coincidence of the likeness as I referenced from a photograph.  I was honored to have this painting exhibited at Philbrook Museum during an American Indian art exhibition.
