This bowl has a flat background that allows the acrylic paint's bright Spring like colors to step forward. I dotted the suface of the bowl to appear as beadwork. There are seven petals on the flower which is an important consideration to aknowledge the 7 Cherokee clans and the 7 Anishaabe teachings.

Materials: Beechwood, metallic paint, acrylic paint

Size: 5 inches

Osiyo, my name is Courtney Biggs. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my wife, Bonnie. We have one daughter, Lois, who is currently pursuing a post graduate degree in Social Art History at the University of Leeds in Northern England. Needless to say, we are very proud of her. Although I have lived in West Michigan most of my life, I was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas. My mother was born in Bunch, Oklahoma where the Choate family was and still is established. My mother's mother was from the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota while her father was Cherokee. It is an honor to share my mother's, grandparents' and ancestors' essence through my art. Currently my canvases of choice are Beechwood Bowls. I love the fact that they are born of this Woodland region and that they hold my interpretations of family, inheritance and vision. I pay respect to my family through the use of vibrant color and designs drawn from nature and heritage.
