Painting: Watercolor, Ink, Paper on Paper.
Chief Joseph watercolor and ink was completed while I researched my family's history. We share the same birthday and I LOVE his story so I honored him with a painting.
This piece was painted on 300 lb, cold pressed watercolor paper. Aquarelle / ARCHES® Watercolour paper size is 30"x 22" mounted on black core foam board. I was inspired by this Native American leader as I researched diligently.
I was researching my Blackfoot Indian heritage, but after a DNA test 2 years later, I realized the stories of a Native American Great grandmother had to be a misunderstanding. Not a trace was found.
Surprisingly, we discovered a large portion of Norwegian roots. Either way, I honor the Native Americans and their struggles and triumphs.
