Power Bison Series

When my dad was sick with Alzheimer's Disease he sloppily packed me a box of my old toys and mailed them to me. I did not want them. When I opened the box full of my childhood toys that I had not seen in over 15 years, I was flooded with emotions and reminded of many painful childhood memories that I could have done without. But when I saw the White Buffalo Woman figurine I was reminded of the beauty and iconic power of this American symbol of strength. So I began painting and painting and created my "Power Bison" series that was a tribute to my new power animal.
