Felix Vigil is Jemez Pueblo and Jicarilla Apache. His paintings are typically mixed media on board.  He applies layers of paper for texture then paints with acrylic.  The result is a fluid surface which has texture the appearance of somewhere between watercolor and acrylic.  This painting is entitled “Greeting the Morning Sun.” It has a sky scene in the background.  He has carved a figure out of aspen, which is attached to the front.  The background surface is textured and has a striking coloration.  The sides of the painting are painted so it doesn’t require a frame.  It is signed in the corner.  Felix says of this painting:

“Each day that we are given is a gift of life. When the sun lights the morning sky we celebrate its power and strength. The spirit or kachina figure embodies the sun. All living beings have a path; a “Life Journey”. The sun lights our path.” Felix Vigil
