Dawn Maiden

  1. girl with butterflies

“Dawn Maiden” is something of a portrait. As I was doing an event for a western/wildlife gallery, a family of Navajo-Hopi descent was exhibiting their stunning dances. This nine-year-old girl finished her dance and came into my display, touching pieces and talking. I had an armature set for a demo and, suddenly, this was the subject, and with soft clay the sketch was rapid. I may yet do a full figure of this child dancing with hair longer than I have given and swirling, arms and legs flashing. Her younger brother, about age eight, and a hoop dancer, might also find a place in my works.
