Black Elk - Winter Colors
The hardest part of this piece was coming up with the painted designs on the robe. Not hard from the application but as I had just done a painted robe I wanted something unique for this one. So Black Elk sat staring at me unpainted for several weeks until I came up with something. Personally I think the wait was worth it as while he might look sad I'm sure he's real proud of his robe and the memories and warmth it provides.
