1211 'Chocó Indian Woman'


12" x 14" oil on canvas panel
After painting this interesting subject I went on-line to find out a bit about Chocó Indians :-
Cariban-speaking Indian people of the Panamanian and Colombian lowlands. The Northern Chocó, the most populous, live in villages along the lower reaches of rivers flowing into the Golfo de San Miguel (in Panama) and the rivers of Colombia’s Pacific coast; the Southern Chocó are concentrated around the Río San José; and the Catio inhabit the eastern portions of the Atrato valley.

Wow! What a beautiful painting! I love the colors!! The green background and lighting bring her out, almost like a 3D effect.
