I was originally going to call the painting "Living," because, in a sense, this is what living was all about in those days. This is not a specific place. It is one I created to many aspects of normal living at this time in the history of the West.
I thought it would be fun and interesting to do something from a distance with small figures Â– to create an overall scene without making a huge painting out of it. There's an unfinished teepee, buffalo meat drying on the racks, and a little cradleboard leaning up against one of the teepees. There are dogs and children and all sorts of other things.
It's obviously late afternoon and the sun's close to setting. The men usually eat first, so some of them have finished eating and saddled up, and are going to enjoy an evening ride. The women are still cooking around their fires. - HT
