In April of 2007, I put up a tipi on my property.
I love it. I loved the whole process of getting it and painting it and having a birthday party where about 15 friends/family members helped me put it up. And now, having it as a place to meditate or nap or read or visit with friends has inspired me to create Native American images in my paintings. I love pictographs and their symbolic meanings. I tried to implement that feeling in my work.
