This large watercolor depicts a Navajo woman clothed in native dress grinding corn in the traditional way. It's an interesting reminder that in our present day of modernity where many of our habits change frequently, the lives and tasks of many of the world's women still follow patterns that have been used for generations--and are still intact.
The mat is artfully cut with images that enhance the painting. A brass plague etched with the painting's title and artist's name is also placed on the matting. Plexiglass protects the painting.This was painted for a one-woman show.
