Blind Bird by dwightyoakamfan Blind Bird by dwightyoakamfan
"Hold on to what is good,
Even if it's a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.

Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.

Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.

Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I'll be gone away from you."

I created this painting not based on any person or tribe, but just the spirit. The quote is not mine. :)

Original is 16x20, i used several different references for both the face lighting and head dress
