Sun Dance Kid

 My watercolor painting "Sun Dance Kid" received First Place award at the 2016 Wyoming Watercolor Society Show in Sheridan.  This painting was done from a photograph that I took at Cheyenne Frontier Days Indian Village a few years ago.  Many of the dancers were Arapaho, a tribe that practices the Sun Dance.

William Henry Jackson exhibit

Visited a gallery in Mancos, Colorado to view early photochroms by William Henry Jackson, whose work was important in the decision to establish Yellowstone as the nation's first national park.  Amazing exhibit, and Jackson is one of my heros.
