Oil on canvas painting of a weathered man wearing turquoise necklace, 20" by 16" (25" by 20 1/2" as framed), signed at lower right by the noted Arizona and Southwestern artist EARL CARPENTER (1931-). The work is titled on the stretcher "Navajo Sand Painter". Carpenter, born in Long Beach, California, is best known for his paintings of the Grand Canyon. His work has appeared many times in Arizona Highways magazine, and the oils of the Grand Canyon are especially sought after at auctions of western art. Carpenter also paints the Grand Tetons. He attended the Art Center College of Design and the Chouinard School in Los Angeles. By 1960 he had moved to Arizona where he has become an entrenched master of the art scene. This work likely dates to the late 1960's or early 1970's. The frame is not of Southwestern style but it is old and convincingly worn, and complements the work.
