Indian Giver

I was inspired to paint this study by the colors and shapes of this woman's dress and the expression on her face.

I've said it before John but it is so true: You make it look easy! I would also say it's obvious that you simply love the process of painting regardless of the subject.

She reminds me of the Seminole Indians in Florida that used to set up in our local festivals selling their fry bread. Their colorful costumes would have been fun to paint.

This is just gorgeous! I'm intrigued to hear more about the story behind this picture. I'd love to see more figurative work by you too John if it inspires you.
