This is the cover art from "Dead Heat". The art director at Penguin decided to let us show Charles on the cover for the first time. The artist spent some time on the internet looking at historic photos of Salish people, and then came up with an image for Charles that would look right at home among the tribal members.
Anna looks much as she has in previous paintings - serene yet wary. Both she and Charles have their wolves eyes. I love how Dan handles light. Their eyes almost seem to glow against the twilight sky, and the skin tones are luminous. The the cactus blooms give a nice splash of color.
These prints are not signed by Dan, but Patty will sign it on request.
The print is 18" × 24", and the actual image is 13.5" × 18".
