Dawn Emerson "Behind the Veil"

"This painting was inspired by a recent trip to India.  A young woman was sitting on the ground in the shadow of the wall of her home  after just finishing her washing.  Upon seeing me she raised her veil to cover her face, and that simple gesture became the focus of this painting."
