PREHISTORIC CALIFORNIA ROCK ART
Inspiration for Modern Art
The Native Americans of early California left us with a heritage
of a vast array of abstract art images engraved on the bedrock
of the state.
The painting above, 'Verdant,' exemplifies the geometric style
found througout the Sierra Nevada Mountains. 'Verdant,' like
most of my rock art inspired works is not a copy of an ancient
work, but an original composition based on an old style, which
appears quite modern.
