revised version: "Native American abstract II," oil on wood panel

Today I made further revisions to the earlier treatment of "Native American abstract II," to create more drama and mood.  The painting is abstract, vaguely suggesting the culture of ancient Native Americans.

"Native American abstract II," first version

Worked on this oil on wood panel painting today.  This was the first pass, which I revised later.  The abstract uses Native American colors and themes, to create a mood.
