Diné Navajo Original Painting Going to the Rodeo Fine Art Native American Paintings Paintings Diné Navajo Beatien Yazz Little No Shirt Jimmy Toddy versoNo artist can portray the daily activities of the Navajo Reservation as well as Beatien Yazz, who, having grown up on the Reservation, was well familiar with the daily activities and he has always portrayed them with young features in a grown-up appearance.

This painting of two young Navajo men, casually riding their horses and chatting while on their way to the rodeo, is presented in Yazz's traditional style.   Each is dressed in traditional garb of the times—cowboy boots, vest over the shirt, concha belt, Levi trousers, neck scarf and a large cowboy hat.  His use of soft, almost pastel, paints blends the subjects well into the desert landscape.  The lack of background subjects, except for the single rock formation, reinforces the starkness of the desert.

The painting is an extraordinary example of the artist at his best.
