From my series of paintings of people of Nepal.
This artwork was created with the intention to help these people .
A young woman about to lift a heavy load in the mountains of Nepal.
Her expression of long suffering at having her photo taken - rather than the weight of the load, is etched on her face.
I love working in pastels for my figures and portraits as it creates a luminosity and an instant colour 'fix' which I don't get from other mediums.
I hope this conveys the stoic nature of these people, living and working in such harsh conditions.

As a series of paintings to which I have a strong personal attachment, the originals remain in my personal collection, though I am now making available in a canvas limited edition of #40.
