Pink Scarf

"Pink Scarf", 9" x 7", Oil on Museum Board
Coming back from the open-air market in a town near Dali in Yunnan Province, China, we stopped at a wood carving shop so my friend Barry could purchase a pair of beautifully and intricately carved doors.  I sat out in the small vehicle to guard our stuff and passed the time by taking photos of the women coming home from the fields.  This portrait is of one of those women.
