Sadhu in Sri Meenakshi Temple

This is a Sadhu or holy man I encountered outside the Sri Meenakshi Temple in Madurai, Kerala, India.  Sadhus are religious ascetics respected by Hindus and Jains.  There are Kumkuma powder markings on his face.

Uzbekistan - Cotton Picker

This woman is a cotton picker from Uzbekistan. She came up to me to have her picture taken as did many of the women.  I thought she was one of the most interesting. The scarf protects her face from the cotton dust as she works. 

My painting was accepted in the 2019 Marin County Fair!
