Latest piece to be accepted into a gallery show!
Many years ago, I had a great adventure living in Bali for about a year. I helped to start a local losman business and developed a wonderful Balinese family. As part of a series I am developing related to my travels, I drew Ni Wayan, my business partner's grandmother. This piece was just accepted to be shown in the Falkirk Juried Show in San Rafael.
The opening reception is March 25th, 5:30-7:30, but the show runs through May 28th.
Also entered but not accepted was Bayi Wayan, Ni Wayan's great grandson. He grew to be 18 years old, then died recently in a motorcyle accident in Bali. This drawing came from a favorite photo I took just after Bayi Wayan had his head shaved as part of a special ceremony.
