Nepalese Colours

This picture juxtapositions the white of the Himalayas with the red of the women's saris on a festival day. it is mixed media on canvas and measures 2 foot by 3 foot. The more misty parts are the clouds that can surround the mountains at times but also the ambiguous feelings of the women towards their husbands. They give them the respect they expect but may not necessarily be happy with them.
