Description


Denny’s third painting of Michael Terry is from his wife, Leigh’s, photo shoot with Michael “ Bad Hand” Terry, Native American. “Bad Hand” is his given Indian name. Michael is an accomplished Actor, Stuntman, Authenticity Expert and Technical Consultant for nearly 50 motion pictures including “Dances With Wolves” and “Last of the Mohicans.” He is currently known as the nation’s foremost authority on Plains Indian history. Michael’s journeys take him all across the USA where he teaches, lectures and informs the curious public on Plains Indian history, culture, and corrects may of the myths and untruths propagated and compounded by generations of television and inaccurate historical portrayal. Michael’s mission is to undo the misunderstandings about the Native Americans from history and show the kinder, gentler side of their survival as a culture. Michael was kind enough to pose for Denny in Pinedale, Wyoming in July 2006 while he was there giving lectures on the Plains Indians history during the annual Mountain Man Rendezvous. All the clothing, regalia, props, jewelry and such are hand-made by Michael to help explain, educate and nullify myths and legends about the Plains Indians history through demonstration, story-telling and careful and accurate responses to questions posed by his audiences. Michael has posed and been painted for the last 30 plus years by well-known western artists such as Frank McCarthy, James Bama, Howard Terpning. The piece is traditional oils on the Ampersand “ Gessobord” Masonite. Size 16" x 24". Original is for Sale- $7500
