Close up view of subdued imagery within this painting - a dragonfly.Megan E. Duwyenie is the daughter of Preston Duwyenie, a Hopi Potter whose well-crafted works often feature silver medallions.  Preston taught ceramics for many years at Santa Fe’s Institute of American Indian Art, and is married to Santa Clara potter Debra Duwyenie.

This Native American Painting is as simple in composition as one would expect of a child.  Over a rust-colored background, the young artist made handprints in a variety of colors.  Most of these colors are bold and dark: green, blue, red and brown. Two bright purple handprints provide contrast.  Added to the background are small symbols, completed in a red that nearly blends in with the rust color. This charming and colorful painting received a blue ribbon at the 1996 Santa Fe Indian Market, in their youth division.  It also received a “Youth Challenge Award” for non-traditional artforms. Both of these ribbons are included with the painting.
