The idea for this "triptych" has been percolating in my mind for some time.. It (they) are not finished, but almost. I am unsure as to marketing them as a trio or individually. I intend to put a resin on each one when I am done. I am also unsure as to signing them, because they can be placed in various positions. Advice is welcome. All of the Navaho Daydreams paintings are currently showing at the Dutch Art Gallery.There is now only one left of this tryptic.
I am not sure this is improved. I spent most of the day working on her. Portraiture is not my strong suit. I lifted her nose about a half inch, worked with the shadows on the nose, adjusted the lips, added iridescent white to the eyelids and gave her some color as well as some beads in her hair. I need to put this aside and ponder this for a while and start something new. Comments welcome.
This painting was inspired by a photo that I took while on a hike up the trail to Chimney Rock in Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. It is also one of my first forays into the use of acrylics. I really enjoyed painting it. It is going to be donated to Alley's House.
