Gazing, With Affection. It keeps us going.
We walk to museums, to look at buildings of particular interest, to lunch or dinner. I can not help but look at the people. Ukraine was part of Russia for hundreds of years but the area has been inhabited for over 30,000 years. Who are they? The ethnic group called ‘Ukrainian’ is Slavic, as are Russians, Poles and parts of the old Yugoslavia. They do not seem in general to be quite as blond with super light skin tones as I noticed in Russia, but close enough.
Intelligent, widely read, art aficionado, speaks multiple languages, resident of Paris and a friend since 2000.

This is another version of Panamanian Woman. I got to know my Panamanian friend when we lived in Panama when we were in the Peace Corps. We lived and worked in the mountains and got to know quite a few people in that coffee producing community.
She has become a diva for me. I knew her in Panama. She has a knack for modeling, which aside from being intelligent, friendly and attractive, makes her a delight to paint and draw. I have several other paintings based on her.
