Nepalese Women


Several years ago I was in Nepal on a day when all the women dressed in their red wedding clothes. The streets were full of various shades of red and of course a lot of gold jewellry. I tried to convey my memory of this in this painting which is mixed media on canvas. In size its about 3 foot by 2 foot. The white parts represent the Himalayas which are an almost constant backdrop.
