Day 21 of 50 Paintings in 50 Days – RETURN OF THE BLUE STAR KACHINA

21 of 50 RETURN OF THE BLUE KACHINA A by Drew Brophy Nov 15 2015 21 of 50 RETURN OF THE BLUE KACHINA B by Drew Brophy Nov 15 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

“When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge.”  Hopi Prophecy

These paintings are #21a and #21B of 50 in the #50Paintings series.

There were two people who tried to buy this painting at the same time.  The way this series works is this:  I sell the painting to the first who asks.  Often there are many who want the painting of the day.  But today, the 2nd person tried to buy it only 2 seconds after the first, and she had attempted to buy the last three paintings.  I couldn’t say no again.

So I decided to paint a 2nd painting today, just for her. It’s a mirror image of the first.  There’s no waves today so I have the time. And it turned out to be really cool.

TITLE:  RETURN OF THE BLUE STAR KACHINA

SIZE:  8″x 10″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

This painting was inspired by the Hopi legend of the return of the blue star kachina.

Last summer we took a road trip through the Four Corners Region (Lake Powell, Mesa Verde, Valley of the God, etc.)  A few years ago I standup paddled the entire length of 225 miles through the Grand Canyon.  I  fell in love with the history and landscape of this area.

This region is home to the Hopi and Navajo Nations.  I saw many of their petroglyphs and ruins and I’m  fascinated with their ancient art and legends.  Do a search of “Return of the Blue Star Kachina” and read about the prophesy.

*I’m making 20 signed, limited  and numbered edition prints of this one – if interested in getting one, email info@drewbrophy.com or call 949-678-8133.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD!

One of my goals with this series is to make original art affordable for those who want it.   If interested in adding tomorrow’s to your collection, please email info@drewbrophy.com or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!
