Three Rattles

Artwork Image: 

These three rattles have been in my possession for at least a decade. They come from the pueblos, but from which of them I cannot be sure. The colors of the wall behind the rattles were designed to appear contemporary with the subject matter and to highlight the warm-colored rectangle surrounding the three rattles. In fact, most of the work in this painting can be found in the background, where I struggled to find both the necessary mood and a complementary ground for the three rattles.
