painting (24x36 inches) was done on commission and based upon a photo taken by a friend of the purchaser.I
added only the marañon tree and fruit to the left to kind of balance things out.The subjects are
two Emberá Indian girls, one of whom is draped in an elaborate shawl.Very colorful, especially
set against the rather drab patch of dirt, probably in the middle of a jungle village, on which they are standing.
"I put off painting[this] for quite awhile, afraid that I would botch the flowers."
Here are two
sisters from the Embera tribe in the Darien, both sporting hibiscus wreaths and brightly-colored wrap-around skirts.
The painting is based on a
photo taken a couple of years ago by a friend of one of my regular customers. I put off trying this painting for quite a while, afraid that I would botch the flowers...
but I think they turned out pretty well. On linen canvas measuring 22x28 inches, now in a private collection.
