"Colorado Indian"

8 x 10
oil on gessoed hardboard
At the end of August this year we were fortunate enough to be in Estes Park, Colorado for the Plein Air Rockies 2011 show. One of their paint outs included this wonderful American Indian model in full native dress, which was only enhanced by the brilliant warm sunlight.


  1. J'admire avec beaucoup d'attention cette toute dernière peinture aux couleurs et à la lumière magnifiques... Une très belle capture et un bel hommage à ce peuple.
    J'aime beaucoup le travail de votre fond également qui contraste bien avec votre premier plan.
    gros bisous à vous je vous souhiate un excellent week-end.

  2. fantastic work...
    how great the colors are...
    expression on the face is wonderfully captured...

  3. So nice Ann! Love the light hitting his face. Great character and detail with a tough subject. Really cool!

  4. This is wonderful, Ann! He is so regal looking and I just know he has a lifetime of stories that I'd love to hear. Perfection!

  5. Great color and detail on such small scale painting - skilled work!

  6. I love it, Ann. You did a wonderful job.

  7. Hi Ann, this is a wonderful painting, I'm so happy to have found your blog. I'm contemplating entering the Estes Plein air show this year. I haven't entered a Plein air event and honestly am a bit intimidated. Perhaps I will get to meet you there though!

  8. This is a great painting. Loved seeing it in person & I know its in a good new home.
