Description The Plains Indians of North America lived a nomadic life. They followed deer and buffalo herds whose migration often depended on the season of the year. The deer and buffalo provided them many of their daily needs including food, clothing and shelter. This painting shows a peaceful campsite on what might be a quiet summer evening.
David Jewell, Marana Member Since January 2017 Artist Statement Hello everyone,
To all of you who have purchased my work or have simply visited to take a closer look, I am extremely grateful. I feel like I now have friends everywhere from Tianjin, China to London, England to Santa Fe, New Mexico and many, many other wonderful locations all over the planet. It is a very exciting experience!
Having lived in the southwest for many years, I have had the opportunity to view the jaw-dropping beauty of its landscape and the Native American culture. As an artist, it was only natural to represent that beauty in my work. Each painting is a delicate mixture of realism and the abstract with the same delicate mixture of warm and cool colors. I began my journey as an artist several years ago using oils and recently decided to switch to acrylics. My paintings have received numerous awards. Many of my original paintings and prints of my work have been purchased all over the U.S. as well as internationally. I am certain you will find these paintings enjoyable and, because new paintings are added to the collection frequently, I hope you visit often.
