Oh, gosh, I wish I could be there! I presented on some of Jeremy Singer's paintings at the recent Native American and Indigenous Studies Association meeting at the Mohegan Sun. Ironworker Cradleboard would fit very nicely with my comments on Singer. I am glad I subscribe to your blog!

Oops. RYAN Singer. Jeremy is his cousin, also a painter.

Not only are Monty, Jeremy, and Ryan all great artists but now Ryan's son Colin has started exhibiting his work - just to make it more confusing :)
