Lady in Red

The original photo was taken by Melanie Wainwright who lives in Nepal.  This beautiful woman and her daughter were performing puja for Rato Machhindranath at a temple.  It was the first night of ceremony ushering in monsoon season.

I finally found time to paint this woman. What captured my eye was her smile and her beautiful clothing.  Hope you enjoy.  Lady in Red

Cuba

My aunt and uncle visited Cuba about 15 years ago. They went there on a educational visa. They loved it there and took many photos. At a recent visit with them they shared their photo album with us and talked about all the things they did on that trip. A couple of pictures caught my eye. I had to paint them. Here is the Cuban Woman.  She really looks like she liked having here picture taken.
