The Hunter -

The Hunter - 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic
Watching, waiting. This is the Spirit of the Hunter. Out on the prairie where buffalo once was king.

It's been ages since I painted Northern Lights. I painted this today when I was just fooling around seeing where the painting would take me. Have you ever seen a buffalo robe? They are super big and heavy. It must have been a challenge to carry them around, but you would have stayed super warm. I painted him wearing one wrapped around him. I also tried to give him a mysterious aura..because he is a spirit, a ghost.
