Just celebrated my twins 6th birthday! Thought I would share a photo of a tattoo I got not long after they were born. The tattoo reveals the exact size of their hand prints when they entered this world. They have grown so much! ... See MoreSee Less
Andy WebbArt and Music seem at times to be considered expendable when money is short in education arenas. I think that we should keep pushing for these essential parts of anybody's development and I do see some hints that these fields are finally included in the popular STEM endeavors. Wonderful when parents like you open the door to showing kids that art---and music-----are a part of any real education----so much a part of other fields---like history, literature, math, science, and so forth. Lucky kids!

I like to apologize to everyone...its been awhile since I posted anything! We all know life gets busy. But here is a recent piece I just finished..."The Legend of the Hermit Thrush". This is another one of my favorite legends growing up. This is a legend of how birds earned their special songs. A long time ago, birds did not have the gift of song. One day the Creator walked the forest and noticed how silent it was. He also noticed how the birds were envious of humans and their beautiful voices when singing. The very next day the Creator had the birds gather together. Birds from great distances came to see him. The Creator offered instructions on how they can receive their song. He told them when the next morning arrives, fly up into the sky, rise as high as they possibly can and fly as long as they can. As each bird can't fly no more, they will receive their song on the way back to Earth. He also mention the bird who flies the highest and longest would receive the most beautiful song. A small bird like the thrush had no chance against a great bird like the bald eagle. So the thrush decided to cheat and hide in the eagles feathers. Smaller birds were the first to come down from the sky. The eagle being the strongest of them all, flew the highest and lasting the longest. He finally tires and starts to head back to Earth. That's the moment the thrush jumps out and flies higher, reaching the Spirit World, where he learned the most beautiful song. When returning to Earth, he became ashamed of himself for cheating. Today you can notice the beautiful song of the thrush birds, but it comes from within the dark of the trees.
Happy New Year from Mohawk Art & Design!!!

Just finished my new piece "Favorite Pastime"!!! Very happy with how this turned out! This piece depicts an elder looking back at his favorite pastime on the St. Lawrence River. I couldn't help myself by making this a meaningful piece, so I used my grandfather Stewart Thompson as the elder.
