BEYOND PAINTINGS...Just for fun!!

"Art" beyond painting: Beaded Creations / Painted Hides / !? - BEYOND PAINTINGS...Just for fun!!

This is a close up the the Center Stip...which on historic hides, that Native people created...this was usually created with seed beads (without research, I am almost certain quill work was primarily for clothing) ... but with this creation, the entire unit was painted.

All of the animals, I had a totally loose, impressionistic brush reflect the free spirits that horses possess. The bison in the center, chosen, because the bison was truly the "center" of survival for an ancient people.
