New Additions to Mexico Series

Pequeña Oaxaqueña

Here are my two most recent additions to the Mexico series. Both are oil paintings on a 16×12 canvas board. I enjoyed painting them and look forward to hearing from you  about them.

The first I had featured previously as a work in progress. I find it exciting to see it finished with it’s dappled light and shadows. I like the weight of the woven huipil, and the movement of her skirt as she walks with a happy bounce.

Niña de Trenza

The second piece “painted itself”. I just followed with the brush in my hand. I was watching her walk with her mother on the plaza. I asked if I could take a picture. Her mother agreed and I snapped as the young girl walked distractedly looking away to reveal a beautiful profile. I slightly modified the composition and am very happy with the result. I called her a girl with a braid.
