Since Christmas is behind us, and Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, I thought I’d treat you all to some picts. of some gorgeous Native American men.
At present, two books that are due for release soon are in editing stage. What this means is that I’m beginning a new story. As I set out the plot and other details of the story, I also look at many, many photos or paintings, trying to get the “look” of the hero and heroine firmly entrenched in my mind. So here are some picts — some of these are current models/actors — some are historical. Some of these historical photos are over a hundred years old, and the one painting is almost two hundred years old.
All, I think are inspiring. Off to the far right here is Michael Grey-eyes, actor. Michael is, indeed, a very handsome man.
The picture above and on the left is Amos Two Bulls, Lakota Sioux who was with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
The picture to the left here says Apache Scout, but I don’t think that’s true. I believe that this man was a chief, although I can’t recall his name at the moment.
All that is said about the picture to the right is that these were Indians who were photographed who were part of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. The man below this post and to the right is Quanah Parker, a very famous Comanche Indian chief.
The photo above is Martin Sensmeier, who is an actor and model.
Please bear with me on some of these photos. I do not know the name of these two men. If you know the names of these young men, do let me know.
The photo directly below this typed comment is a photo from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. And the picture to its right is of course, handsome Adam Beach.
The historical picture to the right is a Cheyenne Scout. And the other picture to the right is again of Amos Two Bulls from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
This particular painting is by Karl Bodner and it was done in the 1830’s. This is a painting of an Assiniboine Indian. This painting I find particularly inspiring., from the lance he holds in his hands, to his shield, to the deer-skin, or perhaps buckskin clothing that he wears.
The way he paints his face, the manner in which he stands. All this, in my opinion, would be the image of one of the hero’s that I write about from the early 1800’s.
Now this handsome, young man, on the cover of one of my books, is Rick Mora, an actor and model. He’s also on several other of my covers, but this cover is a particular favorite of mine.
And where would I be if I didn’t mention the man who inspires me the most? My husband, Paul…here with me at an RWA event.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed the post today and I hope you’ll leave a comment. Although I didn’t advertise it this week, I will be giving away a copy of my newest release, WOLF SHADOW’S PROMISE.
Did you enjoy seeing all these inspiring images? Tell me what you think.
