She looks out at the viewer, young, eager, interested in the world around her. This youthful dark hiaired beauty is shown in a brown jacket, with a touch of bright red showing at neck, all against a bright blue background.
She was with another woman who may have been her sister. They seemed so happy and enjoying life.
I was in the Central Market in Patzcuaro, Mexico. I never talked with her. I took some photographs from afar using my telephoto lens – from which this studio painting was developed. I did not know her real name.
The original oil painting on canvas may be available. Visit my website: http://www.peterworsley.com for details.
