Western/Native American art

I've always enjoyed this type of art. I happened across this site recently and thought I might share. If you go to the home page, there are a number of other categories.

I think it would be much nicer to just look at the art online and not have to fight the fire ants, scorpions, etc....

I do enjoy this type of art as well...especially the colors. I need to start sketching again....mmm, if I ever get my 'round-to-it button' that is...

Again, I say: Get an Indian Country Guide Map," get in your car, and don't come back. Enjoy the real thing, first hand.
