Muskogee Traditions at Ocmulgee Mounds

"Muskogee Traditions at Ocmulgee Mounds"
27" x 31" oil on gessoed masonite
Xanadu Gallery

I must say that this has been a very interesting piece to paint. I have other reference photos of this hunter demonstrating various skills, so he might just show up again later by himself.
I recently discovered that the Indian in this painting is full-time teacher and demonstrator, Jim Sawgrass. I was grateful to meet him in person and present him with a smaller print of the painting.
