watching the world go by: new paintings

In January I visited India in an area where many Tibetan and Himalayan people also lived and visited and this image reminded me of that trip. I know she looks like a monk, but she is actually a young Nepalese Buddhist nun paying her respects (oil on canvas 18 x 24 cm). I love the colour and energy of Tibetan Buddhism but I have had more contact with Buddhism from Thailand and when I saw this picture taken by a friend of mine who is a Thai monk, I couldn't wait to get the oil paints out. He was travelling in Thailand on the train and captured this scene (oil on canvas 13 x 18 cm): "watching the world go by."
