My youngest informed me after our most recent road trip to Mesa Verde, that he wants a Native American themed bedroom. That trip was a blast, and I don't blame him one bit!
This is a fun request for me. I am a little excited. His room has been a kind of random place where I try new things, but it never has a really had a pulled together feel. This is the first piece of native American art I have made for his room, and I think it turned out so darling!
I wanted to give it a little more modern twist. I googled a tangram pattern online. I drew my own on a 1x8 board. I cut it out, and glued the pieces to this cool oval canvas that I already had. I wanted to make the horse rider a little more distinct, so I gave him a headdress, but he needed more. See what I mean?
My friend Kristen suggested adding some kind of fringe for the mane and tail, and I think that made it extra darling!
This is the first piece I have made for his room that is Native American themed, but I have lots of ideas brewing. Be sure and check back for the finished product!
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
