"Study For Sick And Starving"


This Cree warrior is sick, starving and defeated, begging for food at the doorstep of the Indian Agent. The cover photo of the book, CLEARING THE PLAINS by James Daschuk, inspired me to reproduce a similar noble figure, wrapped in a tattered and worn piece of bison hide. So much for treaty promises. This was my third attempt ro make a painting with a human rights theme.
