Large, handstitched rawhide and antler rattle.

Whitetail-deer rawhide and antler with acrylic paint, glass bead loomwork between the tines and strung glass, bone and metal beads. I had to sell this rattle for a song in Winnipeg last year when dad was in the hospital and we needed some quick cash. Oh well. I just wish that I had got some better pictures of it (this was scanned with the handy scanman 2000). As far as I know, I am the only person combining the loomwork with the antler; I like the "fan" look. Currently working on a new piece incorporating this style. Click to enlarge.

* First Bingorage contest !!!!!!!!!!!! *

The rules are pretty simple: send an email to
brokenvultureart@gmail.com
with "contest" in the subject line and a valid return email. If you are the winner, I'll email you back to get your mailing address. I'll pick two winners at random at the end of my Fort Frances Museum show (currently August 3,05).

The prizes: I'll be sending out two new paintings, rolled up and sealed in those handy postal tubes.

Pieces will be combos of acrylic, enamel, pencil and ink on Stonehenge paper. Unframed. Finished between now and then.

I'll probably have a get-together some sort, in the real world, to have an additional art giveaway at the end of the show. Here in da Fort.
Allright, good luck.

:Eric

PS: If the winner comes from Japan or Lichtenstein, you'll get the painting after I scrape together a few nickels for postage.
:)

PPS: It's free. No "shipping and handling" crap. Really.
Sat.update: If I get alotta entries, I'll make more stuff available.
:E

Original Norval Morriseau painting...

that my mom has owned for at least thity years. Untitled stack of birds, perhaps crow family. Different "bird family" motifs are a common subject for Morriseau.
At times when NM couldn't afford 'archival' quality art materials he would paint on whatever was handy, with a limited palette; this piece is red and black acrylic or watercolour on acidic 'kraft' paper.
Pic is a scan of a polaroid, will post a better pic when I get a new digital camera.

A great Morriseau gallery at bearclay gallery.com

Scorpodile Hawktail Meets One Bad Bunny

I just got a "scanman 2000" scanner at a garage sale today. It looks like a giant mouse. I've been using it to digitize pics of stuff that I didn't have a dig. camera for at the time. This piece was painted in Minneapolis around 1998, but wasn't stretched until around 2002. On red vinyl (stretched like canvas) with acrylic and spray enamel paint. Sold; but unpaid :(

40 000 year-old human footprints in Mexico?

I was watching the Discovery channel the other week and the show entitled "The First Canadians" claimed that the first people in the new world were now thought to be Europeans who had followed an ice sheet across the North Atlantic, 13000 years ago. White Folks rejoice! The contention wasn't based on skeletal evidence, but on a spearpoint that looked like lithic remains from the Solutrean tradition of France. (I'm not sure what happened at Discovery Channel, but no reference to the show can now be found on the site and very little using google. I'm not much into conspiracy theory -OK, maybe a little- but this show has nearly disappeared.)

However, if these footprints in Mexico pan out at 40 000 years, then all that gibberish will pan out to be more bad noise.
