People With No Names - The Undocumented #24
This is a mother & daughter who have been deported and are waiting in the women's refuge, trying to decide their next move. I was fortunate to see a few real Gauguin paintings of his big, solid Tahitian women this past weekend; and I realized that these two women have the same strong peaceful bearing. I will be trying to do them justice this next week. Oh and I decided to paint these brave women BIG, so their dimension is 40x60".
