Artist's Description

I have painted hundreds of Buffalos on paper and canvas, but this was my first time to paint a three-dimensional buffalo. I found it very challenging and pleasing.

Oklahoma Medicine is a painted White Buffalo, a very sacred animal to the American Indian. On the rump sections I have painted paintings on both

sides. One side is the face of an American Indian along with a Sissortailed Flycatcher. On the other side is the American Indian with a Redtailed Hawk. In addition to these, both sides have a hunter on horseback chasing a buffalo.

Spirit of the Buffalo originated as a public art project combining art, commerce and civic pride in Oklahoma featuring Oklahoma artists. Initial proceeds benefited the Nature Conservancy's work in Oklahoma. The website project continues through private funds.
