What I love most about this, Elizabeth, is that it was painted by a "genuine" Hopi artist. It's the real deal and you can tell it! It's been a great, educational series. You made a believer out of me! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I have a great appreciation for that as well! Thank you Ginnie!

That figure reminds me of a little carved figure I discovered on our wall when the plaster was removed.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yah? Hmmmm - do you live in a space ship?
You did a good job of showing us what Fred did Ellie.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Michael!! I appreciate that!
Excellent detail, the summoning of magic. Any credits should go to Mr Dylan and not Jimi smile

It's beautiful decoration; the simplicity appeals to me.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I loved every corner of this place Alan!
Mary Colter certainly knew what she was doing when she commissioned Fred Kabotie to paint these murals for her Watchtower, Elizabeth.

You've captured them so beautifully in this series.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: She did indeed - apparently she was a real stickler for detail - and so was he!
Thank you Beverly - I'm glad you enjoyed these!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Louis!
