I came across this card of a painting I did a long time ago. I painted the rocks on location south of Byron, Wyoming. I met my model when we were both young men. I was scouting good painting ideas at a Mountain Man Rendezvous in the Big Horn Mountains. There were quite a few tipis but one was one in particular looked very authentic. There was a paint pony with and Indian saddle. That is where I met 19 year old Mike Terry from South Carolina. He said his parents both had Indian blood in them and that made him have a desire to articulate his heritage in a real way.
