Jim Nelson

Jim Nelson’s paintings are a metaphor for a spiritual connection to the natural world: “The subject matter I paint is not a modern Indian, but a people at a period of time when animal spirits were tied to everyday life. These people knew their placement on the great circle of life; they lived close to their grandmother (Earth Mother) and were guided by their grandfather (Sky Father). In our modern world, an inquisitive public is reaching back into the ancient times for a simpler way of life and the basics; the sky, the earth and the open prairie.”
