Alfredo Rodriguez’s rich and vivid depictions and scenes of the inhabitants of the American West include Native Americans, Mountain Men, and Cowboys often nestled in the mountains, deserts, and Indian villages.  The painting Navajo Playground is a fine example of one of these scenes.

Painting has always been a part of Alfredo Rodriguez's life.  He was born in the small Mexican town of Tepic, Nayarit, which is located in the heart of Mexico and very close to the Huichole Indian reservation. In 1968, an American art dealer discovered Alfredo's art and commissioned him to paint American Indians. The paintings were highly successful and in 1973 Alfredo moved to North America. He has been painting American Indians and Mountain Men ever since.  Alfredo considers himself a traditional artist and describes his style of painting as Classical Realism with a bit of Impressionism.

The Favell Museum of Western Art in Klamath Falls, Oregon honored Alfredo giving him the "1991 Artist of the Year" award and his work is in the museum's permanent collection. The Leanin' Tree Museum in Boulder, Colorado and the Booth Museum in Georgia also have several of Alfredo's paintings in their collections.
