I saw my first kachina perhaps 40 years ago. The encounter locked the mysterious archetypal figure in my mind. I found it evocative and captivating. In 1987 I moved to Santa Fe. I dove into the imagery and art of the desert Southwest, finding particular kinship with the kachinas. They are protective and teaching figures. Some images are from existent carvings, some from deep inside of me. 14" x 17" Oil on stretched canvas Ready to hang directly on the wall. 14" x 17"Go to link
