Earth Fire Paintings: Stevens New Painting Inspiration!
Jennifer Stevens has made a beautiful discovery of Lakota Earth Paint that her ancestors used for centuries to paint their clothes, tipis, and hides. She wanted to figure out a way to paint with the beautiful rich earthy colors; she added the pigments to her Texture Gel Medium and that was the beginning of her new painting technique combining her new paint with her Oneida pottery designs, symbols, and raised bead work for her inspiration. She is calling her unique style of painting, "Earth Fire." Watch for more paintings and more will be available on this website soon!
