Peruvian Woman

"Peruvian Woman", 9" x 7", Oil on Museum Board
This Peruvian woman is a weaver in a small cooperative that my daughter and I visited on a travel tour.  Being a person who has collected carpets and weavings for many years now, it is hard for me to resist the beauty of the color combinations and the fabrics of the products that these women made. I came home with a beautiful wool poncho of many colored stripes.


  1. Another great one from Peru. Love the cheeks, so pink and often chapped.

  2. Kathryn, this is such a wonderful series of faces..and the travel stories, too- are fascinating!

  3. This is a great series. Love the reds throughout especially on the face.
