Portait Painting - Feathers, Star and Sky - Prescott, Arizona

Another one of Patrick Saunders' paintings from a Prescott, Arizona pow wow last summer.

The brightly colored feathers worn by this young man commanded Patrick's attention. His challenge as a painter was to play down the obvious portrait and focus on the beauty of the feathered headdress.
