Artist's Description

The bison is a great part of American history. On my design on "Bison Horizon" I tried to keep it simple and show how the Indian hunted buffalo with bow and arrow to have food and use the skins for warmth or fur trading.

I worked in acrylic paint with a glass medium gel to get transparent effects.
