Dealt Bountifully

DEALT BOUNTIFULLY

These two women working together on an important day of the year…It is time to make Hominy! This was hard work but a good time to visit friends. They are carrying the cast iron hominy pot, filled with hand-shelled field corn, over to the fire where it will be cooked for hours in lye water until the skins start to loosen. They will rinse the corn several times to remove the lye. It will then be preserved for the winter. It is difficult work but worth it!

Mothers of the Earth

MOTHERS OF THE EARTH

The women in this painting seem to blend into the snow, into the woods, and into the earth. Mothers of the Earth is a painting that draws you into the feelings you imagine the mothers are having.

Ancestral Protection

ANCESTRAL PROTECTION

The memory of the Trail of Tears is forever. The proud Cherokee people were driven and deprived but were never defeated. The memories, the strength, and the pride of the ancestors are held onto in the descendants, the children. The young mother realizes as she holds her child, she is protecting the hopes and beliefs of those strong people on the Trail of Tears.

Red Trail Road

RED TRAIL ROAD

The Cherokee family are following what they trust is the Red Road— for protection, for health, for love of each other and for love of God— the Right Path of Life.
