Gouache on paper, 31” x 73”, 1971
…I knew and worked with Norval Morrisseau for many years during his early development and, although impressed with Norval’s early work, I found the Chee Chee painting impressed me the most. Chee Chee will one day be rated in the vanguard of the great Canadian artists. My ambition now is to have an original free flight Chee Chee painting to leave as a legacy to my family.
