Chief Running Antelope has been my third painting of Native American Chiefs . This particular painting was chosen due to the 3/4 angle of the Face . This particular Angel is always challenging for the Portrait Artist .

The painting process itself was a carefully designed palette of Earth pigments selected for the Skin tone .

The painting took about 4 months to complete . Chief Running Antelope was known as a great orator of the Sioux nation . My aim as a Portrait Artist being to capture his life to the utmost that my skills allow me to achieve excellence .
