This painting, entitled "He is one of the stars" was done using both oil pastels and watercolor paints on 140 Lb cold press watercolour paper.

The image was inspired by an Edward Curtis photograph of Plenty Coups, a visionary Crow Nation chief, and by a line from the Crow creation myth: "Look. There is a man. He is one of the stars, but now he is down here standing on the ground."


One of Plenty Coups' more well known quotes:  "Education is your greatest weapon...... Study, learn, help one another always. Remember there is only poverty and misery in idleness and dreams - but in work there is self respect and independence."
