Billy Hensley is a self-taught Chickasaw artist with an amazing eye for design and color. Working with the black silk of the jacket, he used brilliant gold and deep turquoise paint in a bold, banded arrangement, vertical on the front and horizontal on the back, that represents a banded rainbow against a dark, night sky. The dynamic, heavily textured paint contrasts beautifully with the smooth texture of the black silk, and gives a quiet energy to the overall look. There is both contemporary vigor and subdued elegance to this piece. Wear to that special occasion I used a technique with great texture to also set off the smooth fabric. with basic black top and pant accented with simple gold jewelry for a truly memorable fashion statement.

"I titled this coat Kala Losa, or Black Rainbow in Chickasaw. When working on it I focused the juxtaposition of the bright bold colors I am generally drawn to against the deep dark richness of the black silk. The stripes and lines represent a rainbow abstracted against the dark sky."
