New Year’s resolution redux
I know in my last missive, I said that in the new year I would concentrate on Women in Hats. Well, that didn’t last long.
My only excuse is that I recently started reviewing the work of John Nieto. On one of my first trips to Santa Fe as a young adult, I saw Nieto’s bold and colorful work and right then I resolved to be an artist. That resolution was delayed for many years, but ultimately kept.
So, this paining of the Lakota war chief Sitting Bull is my homage to Nieto. Perhaps Nieto was also inspired by Sitting Bull? Both lived their lives fully and with purpose. Not a bad example for all of us.
Until next time...
