King paints nude women

Look againThe Blackfeet artist is a bit nervous about the exhibit. After all, people react in all sorts of ways to pictures of naked women.

But this is how King, 54, feels compelled to explore what it means to be feminine.

“It shows how precious it is to be female and how sacred we are. We’re sacred, and the Creator made us sacred. We create life. ... I want to portray women to hold themselves in high esteem. ‘I am important. I am a sacred person. I need to take care of myself. I need to make myself a better person,’” she said.
