a wonderful composition and theme….!!
Thank you. I liked it too. I say this because it always amazes me what comes out on the paper.
I’m fascinated by how little it takes to convey an image to the human brain. Except for his piercing, wise eyes, the buffalo is mostly implied, and I love that–he’s like the smoke from the pipe.
To me this is a spirit. It just can’t be confined. And it is amazing how little suggestion we need to complete a picture. Just think about all the pictures in the clouds.
Looks like an ancient shaman. Lovely!
I would tripple “like” this if I could. Came back for a second look.
Thank you so much Jamie.
Yes. I think the impression lies In the eyes mostly.
Wonderful painting and I love the friendly eyes.
Thank you for your generous words.
