There is something so peaceful about the quiet gaze of a day dreamer! It seems to me to be a very mystical state. The Plains Indians had a very profound connection to the mystical world. In their daydreams; their must have been a magical, unbounded quality.
let My Spirit Soar portrays a young Blackfoot woman who has come to her favorite sunny place to reflect and to dream. The flock of white birds reflected in the water beside her ar symbols of her spirit’ purity and freedom.
Doolittle attended college at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, where she met her husband, Jay Doolittle. The Doolittles, after a brief career as graphic artists, became “traveling artists” and drove in a motor home around the American southwest, painting scenes of the landscape as they went. It was during this period that Bev’s expansive paintings of the American Western landscape and its wildlife began to develop and soon after, she began to portray Native Americans—often including them alongside animal themes.
Doolittle has become a popular artist in the United States, and her original paintings and prints are collected widely by those interested in the Western themes she portrays. Realistic Western art has conventionally been dominated by oil painting, and Doolittle was instrumental in bringing watercolors into the genre, and garnering respect for this medium from collectors of Western art.
Doolittle has also co-authored and illustrated several books. She has long been interested in the plight of Native Americans, wild animals, and ecological and environmental issues and her books—like her paintings—focus on these issues.
One of the most interesting and unexpected camouflage paintings she has done is in the July 2015 calender, that shows what could be called a ” likeness of Elvis”, two of them, a side view and a frontal view, plus many hound dogs, also an outline of a guitar, very cool.
