He wears a bright red, white and blue blanket wrapped around his waist. The blanket is one like those the U.S. Government gave the Indian Chiefs of that time. Just out of sight, on Michael's chest, is a "Presidential Peace" medal, also given to the Indian Chiefs. Lastly, the fan he is portrayed holding was made from immature eagle feathers. Hanging from it are more ermine furs and leather thongs that are below his right hand. Michael hand-made all the authentic regalia that he is shown wearing.

This piece measures 17" x 23," medium is traditional oils on "Claybord," gesso-coated Masonite.

Karchner,Denny-THE COURTER
THE COURTER / Painting Oil / 16 / 7500 USD

Description: This was the second in Denny's Michael "Bad Hand" Terry series, titled "The Courter." Michael is portraying a Northern Cheyenne, circa 1860-1870 and is "looking for a bride." Portrayed, he is wearing an eagle feather war bonnet trimmed with row-after-row of Italian glass beadwork that the Native Americans traded for. Above the beads is a row of small bells. The sides of the war bonnet have rows of long, white ermine hides, otherwise known as weasel. The sleeves and sections of the front of Michael's shirt are also trimmed with hundreds of rows of ochre and turquoise glass beads. Lining Michael's shoulders and the back of his arms are rows of human hair strands, held tightly by metal beads.

He wears a bright red, white and blue blanket wrapped around his waist. The blanket is one like those the U.S. Government gave the Indian Chiefs of that time. Just out of sight, on Michael's chest, is a "Presidential Peace" medal, also given to the Indian Chiefs. Lastly, the fan he is portrayed holding was made from immature eagle feathers. Hanging from it are more ermine furs and leather thongs that are below his right hand. Michael hand-made all the authentic regalia that he is shown wearing.

This piece measures 17" x 23," medium is traditional oils on "Claybord," gesso-coated Masonite.

This is the start of a series of collections. The first collection, "WESTERN ART" are various "pencils" of Native Americans, western still life, and movie actors.

The second collection is "WATERCOLORS." These are just a few of the dozens of paintings I have done over the years. For several years in the 70's I went on a "barns, old houses, sheds and spring houses binge." I was commissioned to do most all of them. All were sold and I never saw them again. At this point in time, I sure wish I had digital copies of all of them at least. Most are hanging in homes unseen by public view some hanging in places of business. I have managed to collect a few to post here. I am working to retrieve several more. Most hang in Pennsylvania, others, all over the country. Stay tuned.

I should also mention here that I was taught "watercolors" by one of the best watercolor artist of our time, the late, Thomas Helwig of Pittsburgh. I wish I would have stuck with the art form more. "I could have been a contender".maybe. You all be the judge. My "pencils" seem to "speak" more to me. I know in the art world "watercolors" always sell better than "pencils." The "pencils" seem to impress more."go figure."

My third collection is "NASCAR / PHOTOSHOP." My "pencils" and "watercolors" are somewhat of a "release" for me. I sit long ten and eleven hour days as a NASCAR artist/illustrator for Vanity Fair a/k/a VF Imagewear here in Tampa, Florida. I work on a G4 in Adobe Illustrator and PhotoShop exclusively. As a freelance artist I sit in front of my G4 here in my home studio at nights also working in PhotoShop and CorelDRAW on my PC. Mostly working on T-shirt artwork that can have as many a 50-60 layers to complete. This is what "pays the bills." If you care to see some of my other PhotoShop work please go to my personal website. You will also see some of my other forms of art that I am into. I would ask that you take the time to take a look. I ask that you please come back later.
