TOP: These are a few of Antoinette Thompson's pieces (from top to bottom), "Angel Eyes," "Summer Days" and "Midnight Moon."

BOTTOM: "Morning Gods" is a piece Thompson said she painted early in the morning and it reminds her of the Navajo morning gods the Yei Be Cheiis. She said if you rotate it to the right, you can see them.

Just as every chef wants their food tasted, every artist wants their work seen.

For Navajo artist Antoinette Thompson, she wants the people of New York City to see her artwork again and hopes to give them that chance this year.

A native of Lukachukai, Ariz., Thompson, 32, has been painting professionally for the past four years and was recently invited for an open art exhibition at the Agora Gallery in New York.

"I love New York City," Thompson said, during a phone interview with the Navajo Times earlier this week. "I want nothing more than to go back."
