Description I had a hard time naming this painting. I had three choices and they were War Path, War Painted and War Cloud. I contacted some of my friends and they voted on which name they liked. War Cloud(s) won with the most votes. You can see the dark clouds building behind the pony and soon the winds of war will blow over the Indian village in the background. I did some research on the symbols on the pony and the red plus on the 'War bridle' means the horse and rider escaped ambush, the blue hoof prints mean those are the number of horses captured in a raid and the circle around the eye means alertness and clear vision for the horse.

As a visual artist specializing in oil painting and commissioned paintings, I have tried to present a view into my studio. This gallery represents my passion for art and shows the vision and style of my work. It is my hope that the viewer will appreciate my perception of art and the subjects that I create. Come and join me in a tour of my studio and, hopefully, enjoy the beauty that I strive for by producing art that comes from my inner passion. The Gallery is divided into various images, each designed to give the viewer a cross section of my art work. As you click on the each image, you can follow the road that leads from just enjoying the art to the opportunity to purchase selected items. It is my hope that you will find an image that you will be proud to hang and will provide pleasure for many years to come.
