I absolutely love the indian portrait with the wolf head-dress.....The details of the lines of his life beautifully done in telling a story without words.....  Your cousin has a true talent in painting a story in the face of a man.

Currently I'm unemployed but the pictures are fabulous!!!   If I could afford them I wouldn't hesitate to request the indian maiden with wolves.  As I said in viewing the Indian picture these added other pictures show a distinct ability to put a story in the lfaces which appear in many of his paintings.  It is one thing to draw an image (even well) it is entirely different to tell a story in the heart of a portrait.  For me that is a sign of a true artist.  I will save the site because his art would be something I would be interested in when finances come about.

That Indian maiden is a painting of me he did a longgggggggg time ago , he's a self taught artist, I love his Native paintings, sadly he's been incarcerated for most of his life, starting at age 13. both his parents more or less didnt want to raise him, my parents tried, but by then he was so used to being on his own........he doesnt trust alot of people, but he spends his time in prison by painting, writing songs..........thanks for your compliments I will pass them on to him!

JDsMom now I know what you look like...LOL  Seriously I forwarded the site to my niece who is deep into Native Indian culture and beliefs and also does spirtual painting portraits....just waiting on her reply when she sees his.  But I believe she will see what I see.
 
Having a companion  now departed, which was part wolf, I've learned to love and respect the inteligence of this amazing animal. They are not dogs by any means so that is why,  in all she's taught me, I tend to be partial with anything that captures the spirit of wolves.  May also give some insight from what you describe him to be and an acute observer(obviously) ...  his own spirit.  It's a shame he isn't free to explore his talent potential on the outside.  But inside or out he has a gift and talent.

I have a pencil drawing of Mr. Fisher's I purchased on Ebay several years ago it is titled Kiowa Indian and was done in 1989.  Can anyone tell me anything about the artist or the picture?

 Hi, I've been off site for quite awhile. I will check with his brother or sister to see if they know of the Kiowa Indian  in 1989. Sadly, my cousin passed away last night, they think it was a heart attack.

Sorry to hear about the passing of your cousin.  My thoughts are with you.  His art work is a nice legacy to remember him.

Take Care
