Woman of Tibet

















This was painted a few years ago with
permission of the photographer, Wendy O.
The Tibetan people have a very reddish
tone to their skin with jet black hair.
Painting the dark hair and coat was
difficult; thinking it would over take
the colors in the face and act as a
"black hole".

I am stunned by both the beauty and complexity of this painting. I plan to be a frequent visitor and continued admirer.
