Old Brave in Minnesota Winter – Painted on July 14, 2008 – I grew up in northern Minnesota and was exposed to a great number of native Americans at the time. Senior citizens have so much character in their faces and that makes painting them interesting, fun and rewarding if you get it to look right. I think finally I did here. I’d appreciate your comments. Incidentally, if you do recognize the eyes, (you may recall seeing them in a different color), in this one you get a gold star too.
Sarah G. from Washington won the gold star by identifying the eyes in this one in July of 2008. It was a fun little contest.
