Historial Treasures Series #115 - Tohono O'odam Pueblo Pottery, c 1800s
When I saw these two pieces of art I was taken with their stark simplicity of pattern and color. This is the first of many paintings where the background is unadorned and dark. It is black....it is American Journey Brown Derby....numerous washes give it a rich, dark, appearance with depth. It is simply framed, with no mat.
