Painting at it’s Purest

This is a small 6×8″ oil sketch I made on New Years eve hiking with my family.  We went to a place that out of cultural respect and a sense of conservation I won’t name.  I have several times painted or sketched at rock art sites and always feel a sense of awe and wonder admiring the art of these native Californians.  I love seeing the mortars nearby where the artists ground their pigments and it is always a longing and stretch of the imagination to travel back in time and picture them being made and to try to understand their meanings.
