Bhutanese Boy

8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord

What fun I had painting this!!  My son and daughter-in-law just returned from Bhutan in the Himalayas.  They were running in a marathon there as well as sightseeing.  If I could go anywhere and didn't mind heights, that is where I'd like to go.  I have to give credit for the image that inspired this painting to a wonderful photographer, Jay Farbman.  He took lots of photos of the marathon and the people in the countryside and was kind enough to allow me to paint some of them.  There are so many great shots that I'll be happily painting for quite a while.  Of course, my daughter-in-law, Katherine (KK's Photo Friday), took great pictures as well, so lots more to come :-)
