Harry Edwards painted Handsome Morning—A Dakota in 1921.
As the Brooklyn Museum describes, Edwards painted Handsome Morning “wearing a fringed shift with painted emblems, a bead-and-quill necklace, beaded moccasins, and a ceremonial blanket of fur-lined buffalo hide painted with abstract motifs (a specialty of Dakota women).”
Edwards picks up the bold colors of her garments in the indistinct strokes of the background, tying the subject and her setting together.
In fact, Edwards seems deliberately to have composed the scene to highlight her garments, her delicate moccasin emerging from behind her carefully arrayed blanket.

"i want to be batman though"
"shhhhh mommy needs more followers on pinterest"

Saw this cool exhibit based on skateboarding culture and I decided to show my favorite boards and I’m hoping to get one for myself. Not really going in any order here, I’m just showing off some sick illustrations. Go to Light Grey Art Lab to check this stuff out yourself.
