Story Robe

Those who have been following have heard me going on about trying to be more abstract, and so here’s another direction that one could go with that.  Oh wait a minute….this isn’t my art at all! I “borrowed” it from a story robe in the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center in Great Falls. The robe was a gift to the explorers by the Indians of the region, and this is only a small sample of the many many painting on the robe. I love the gesture that is achieved with such elegant and simple lines.  To me, this looks like a chief (on horseback…note the headdress) meeting someone from another tribe and offering the pipe. The other person is disarming his bow. What d’you think?
