This woman's face attracted me because with her long neck and her straight mouth, she reminds me of an ostrich. I had such a good time with the colors of her face reflected from her dress and background.

This portrait is of no one in particular. When I asked fellow artists what emotion they felt when they saw her, they all said, "sadness". That is the feeling I was trying to convey. This is painted with Payne's Gray and a little color, not much. I would like to try another that expresses, "happiness".

I talked with this woman in a plaza in Havana, Cuba. After a while, she asked if I wanted to hear her sing. I said, 'yes' and she sang, "Dos Gardenias Para Ti". I think it must be a well known Cuban song but I had never heard it.
