"War Bonnet - Sonela"
9"x12"x1.5" mixed media on panel

The paintings in the "War Bonnet" series are being named using Cherokee Counting words. I love the connection but I am having a hard time not naming them the number along with an English name. Each painting evokes a story. Maybe each painting will receive its own story for the person viewing the painting and I have needed to step aside? Not sure? This painting, #9, along with the others seem to have me wanting to "Follow the Sound of the Drum" I feel there is more than paint and canvas but a spirit speaking through me. It has been, "A Painting Day".
