Flower of Almond

Flower of almond

Oil on MDF

I bought  very unusual blue carnation yesterday and tried to paint, but it didn’t come out right.

Instead I decided to paint something different. This pretty girl is painted from a photo I’ve taken several(to be honest, many) years ago from now. In Kashmir. While painting her I was wondering how pretty she had grown into, and maybe she’s married and had more than a couple children. On top of that I want to think she had survived, and now is a strong beauty as an almond flower.
