Really nice Peter, I admire your skill in creating such depth in your painting and the overall subtleness of the painting.

I think it would be terrific in a large size hanging on a wall.

A big Thank You to all for your kind comments...................here's a little explanation......................................

"In traditional Lakota culture the Hanblecheyapi (vision quest, literally "crying for a vision") is one of seven main rites. Vision quest preparations involve a time of fasting, the guidance of a tribal Medicine Man and sometimes ingestion of natural entheogens; this quest is undertaken for the first time in the early teenage years. The quest itself is usually a journey alone into the wilderness seeking personal growth and spiritual guidance from the spirit, sometimes Wakan Tanka. Traditionally, the seeker finds a place that they feel is special, and sits in a 10 foot circle and brings nothing in from society with the exception of water. A normal Vision Quest usually lasts two to four days within this circle, in which time the seeker is forced to look into his soul."

He has been up here for 2 days now................if you look carefully you'll find him!
