The Ute Messenger
Original Watercolor/Mixed Media
There is a moment sometimes that catches my heart….just before the leaves start to fall. Held breath, a world of fire, the first soft drift of leaves, a breath of autumn so crisp you want to put in a bottle, to open one day and remember that moment in time. Beneath snow dusted peaks, the trees are on fire and jewel the water, and a massive bull moose pauses for a moment while he drinks.

The Ute tribes lived in harmony with their land, moving seasonally through their homeland mountains and plains on the Colorado plateau. Wise, fierce and proud of face, the Ute messenger, garbed in long fringed deerskin, mink and jackrabbit skins, has come to a neighboring tribe, signaling with a bundle of arrows that he has messages to share and carry to the next tribe. He sits in companionship with one of the lean, powerful dogs that shares the tribe’s fortunes.

Gypsy Mist
Original Oil Painting

The story feather sweeps through the air as a proud Crow mother tells her small daughter stories of Old Man Coyote and Star Boy as they travel to their new fall camp. Tribes often used feathers tied with beaded leather fringes or other items as a mystical part of their storytelling. When they traveled, mothers and their children would be dressed in their finery, decorated with elks’ teeth and intricate beadwork. Often they would ride on the folded buffalo skins that made up their teepees, the largest of all the tribes, while the horse, adorned with a fancy beaded crouper, would pull a travois made from the tepee poles. The Crow excelled at horsemanship, and after the age of four or five, children would ride everywhere by themselves on their own horses. The Crow are a tall, handsome people, known for their courage and love of fine horses. The women hold a very significant role within the tribe and are known for their beauty, courage and strength.

Gypsies are known for their love of beautiful horses and mystic communion with them. Misty mornings and Old World Fairs drew buyers and sellers with snorting, spirited horses to mill and neigh in a meadow by the villages, as they jingled gold in bargains and trade. The Gypsy rides the stallion and sparks the fire within the horse’s heart…..and knows the stallion will challenge the wind and breathe the clouds.
