This commissioned painting illustrates a Lakota creation story about Dog. I hand printed the story around the edge of 15″ x 12″ piece of 300lb watercolor paper.

‘So angry was the Creator over man’s mistreatment of animals that he drew a line wit his finger upon the ground. On one side were the beasts and on the other were the people. The line grew so deep and so wide that neither side could be near the other ever again. But at the last moment, Dog jumped over, to remain forever at man’s side.’

Wonderful story isn’t it?
