Painting Yokuts

NADI SPENCER put her own slant on the view of statues at William Shatner's Garden. His Belle Reve horse ranch on the South Fork of the Kaweah River in Three Rivers, CA, boasts an amazing river walk dotted with redwood sculptures by R.L. Blair, life-sized depictions of Yokuts men women and children performing tasks such as basket-weaving, story-telling and wood-carrying. Nadi chose to paint three of these scenes, using friends as models, to make the village come to life. To see more of her process, go HERE.
