Some of the most interesting faces in the world can be found in India.

Hi Jala lovely depth and mystery in your painting. I visited your website it is lovely to see all of your works together, nice new layout too. Your photos of the people of India are full of sunshine we saw the film last night called 'no one killed Jessica' set in Delhi it was very interesting and I am not sure if witness protection is now set up after this event. I believe the film was based on fact and also fiction. The film was just bursting with such life from the people we enjoyed the film very much.

Hi Caroline, thank you. Now I'm inspired to get back working on the website some more. I did a certain amount and lost steam. I need to finish it. I don't know that film, I'll have to check it out.

Hi Suzanne - Yeah, this painting feels to me like a drippy wet yet vibrant day. Our house IS very light-filled, but sadly we are probably going to have to sell it soon, thanks to recession, unemployment, and bills. The faces in India are amazing. Remember you have permission to paint any of them you like.
