Ukranian Woman

We walk to museums, to look at buildings of particular interest, to lunch or dinner.  I can not help but look at the people.  Ukraine was part of Russia for hundreds of years but the area has been inhabited for over 30,000 years.  Who are they?  The ethnic group called ‘Ukrainian’ is Slavic, as are Russians, Poles and parts of the old Yugoslavia.  They do not seem in general to be quite as blond with super light skin tones as I noticed in Russia, but close enough.

Tapas With Friends

In a bar in Cabañal having tapas with Ximo and Andea.  They are great company.  We tried an array of unusual tapas, thanks to Ximo’s excellent suggestions.  Superb local wine.  I had a great time with them in May, sometimes in bar and sometimes at Ximo’s place.  

Cabañal is on the edge of Valencia, Spain at the beach.  The narrow streets reflect the age of the place, which is full of many two story traditional Spanish townhouses.   This is a small water color painting.

Close up

We move in on the eye, it’s shimmering reflections, fluidity, how it conveys awareness.

Carol — 1954-2018 (Version 2)

My previous painting of Carol was in watercolor whose shimmering qualities gives a kind of what one might call a ‘spirit shimmer.’ This rendition tells more about her fiery qualities, her strength, her defiance.
