Joseph artist Mark Kortnik shows off his 2013 oil painting, “Land of the Winding Waters” before sending it off to Charles Astleford of Buckeye, Ariz., who commissioned the work as well as several others over the years.

Mark's commissioned oil painting historically illustrates the Nez Perce people some 200 years ago, camped along Prairie Creek, Wallowa County, Oregon. This area of Oregon near Wallowa Lake was considered their sacred homeland before being driven out by the white settler expansion in the early 1800s.

Art prints are available from Mark by ordering on this site or by calling 541-432-9555.
