Nepali Child

oil on board

Here I found myself wanting to honor the face of this one very particular (and very, very cute) individual, but NOT worry it to death.

I hadn't realized so many people live in Nepal- 26.6 million. The flag of Nepal is the only non-quadrilateral national flag, and it's beautiful:

This is the second in a series of portraits based on the work of the superb photographer Steve Evans.


  1. I love this...the palette, the expression. I just love the whole thing. My favorite thing that you paint is people.

  2. Wow! A beautiful portrait!! Congratulations, Taryn!!!

  3. We are going on a journey to the other sides of the world. I'm all in.
