I painted Yolanda for the second time and have gone back to the painting to re work the background. We did the portrait in the Rio Cuale Park and I focussed on her face so the background was unfinished and simply a jumble of woven bags and palms so now the bags are gone. I have done four portraits of people in her family, beginning with her grandmother, Margarita, because they are out and about selling their hand woven huipils, blouses or dresses, and are so friendly, talented and interesting and we all have a good time.
I am an artist with a passion for the portrait and I paint all things living and organic, bodies, faces, creatures big and small, dreams and memories, all is real. I paint what I see in my studios in Mexico and Canada. See more work at www.angelinekyba.com I blog to show my work and my life and the joy of it all. I was born in Northern Canada and still dream of snow, have lived and worked in Hawaii, France and the United States and Mexico and feel the liberating effects of being a foreigner. I have studios in Mexico and Canada, I am a painter, a mother, a traveller, a seeker
