Paola Weaving (in her home in the Copper Canyon)
I came back from the Copper Canyon with some wonderful photos of the Tarahumara Indians...the most un changed indigenous people in Mexico. This is the first of a series I hope to do. I had the privilege of visiting Paola (and two of her sons) at her home in a valley leading to Urique. She weaves the most wonderful baskets. With her permission I took a picture of her weaving by her wood stove.
I intend to do several versions of this painting as the scene is very compelling.
