"Russian Girl"

8 x 8"   oil/canvas panel

sold

The title of this painting should probably be "The Rancher's Wife" since it goes so extremely well with my earlier painting of "The Rancher."
But, she is actually a cultural exchange student from Russia that visited Cascade several years ago. I did this painting from one of several reference photos taken when she modeled for our artists group. I really like how this one came out, she looks so sleepy and introspective. Something which I think gives a timeless quality to a portrait.
