Reworked the eagle for a calling bird. My masters program is starting again tomorrow, so my art will slow down a bit.

Here is a new work in progress that I have begun. I am jumping around a bit on different subject matter so that I do not get burned out. I like this workflow a lot better, and the end result is that it holds my interest more. I hope that you enjoy it!

Here are some additional Ribbon Designs. I find this art so beautiful, and I know the talent and effort needed to complete the projects.
Here are some new posts from my friends. These are prayer shawls done for the Native American Church. These are from Al Begay.

These are some examples of ribbon work used in ceremonial art and Pow Wow. From what I can determine some of the first tribes to start ribbon design were Eastern Osage, Kiowa, Seminole, and Great Lakes Tribes. Certainly the art has evolved however, the more intricate ribbon work today is practiced by the Seminole and members of the Native American Church. Pow Wow work is basically large design favoring eastern floral. I really enjoy the art as I have tried some designs and there really is no short cuts that make it easy. It is hard work and takes some planning, my hat goes off to the artisans that endeavor to do this type of art.
