Stolen Eyes (study 2)
Printmaking: Ink on Canvas.
The story behind this beautiful woman from Nepal (and others like her) moved me so much that I just had to try and capture her beauty & serenity in the midst of such hardship.
Her eyes were removed as a young child so that she could beg in the street and so make an income from this for her family. This happens to many children in India and Nepal.
I hope I have captured some of the beauty & pain of this incredible woman.
I have no more words to describe this and hope that it speaks to the viewer.

This is series of paintings to which I have a strong personal attachment, therefore the originals remain in my personal collection, though I am now making available a canvas print limited edition of 40.
This is #05 canvas print of the original pastel painting. This will be rolled in a strong cardboard tube. Please allow 3 weeks for printing.
