Endeavor to Persevere

Okay....I'll say it!   WOW!   I really like this piece.  I had my doubts as I painted him but once I added the facial decoration it all seemed to come together.  I really like the eyes as they just seem to say so much.  Sort of "Look!  I'm here and I'm not going anywhere!"  As for the title if you've seen the movie "The Outlaw Joesy Wales" you will remember Chief Dan George saying those words..."Endeavor to Persevere!"  I think that's a great statement and it applies to this piece. 

There are more photos in the Gallery and I'll look forward to your comments. 


  1. Wonderful piece Lynn. He certainly has attitude. Looking forward to the next one.

  2. The Eyes have "IT". Realistic and caricature in harmony. One of your best.

    They thought about fer awhile then declared war on the union.
