Bernadette Thomas-Hughes is the artist of this oil painting of Native American entitled "After The Dance". Although Bernadette paints a variety of subjects she is known for painting the images of people and their environment in a way that portrays those elusive qualities that make an individual totally unique. She hopes to catch each one of her subjects in a personal intimate and meaningful moment of their life with which all people can identify. In the short time she has been able to manage the overall setting of the painting while still being able through the use of powerfully muted color, to feature the person or persons in the painting. Originally from Kentucky farm country she makes her home in Arizona where she finds the desert heat and the environment beneficial to her career. This measures 28"H x 28"W. Purchased from a private collection. Excellent condition. Thanks for looking!
