The hands are beautiful, both in overall shape and detailed pattern.

Thank you Veronika (my apologies once more for misspelling your name)

This series is a complete technical exercise for me, starting with wanting to do henna pattern in my art (using my favorite model). This started when I saw a book on henna designs in a bookstore, and I suddenly remembered that I was part of the first wave of henna artists in the Philippines during the 80s and 90s

And did you make the henna pattern on your favourite model? ;)

I stopped practicing henna art by 1998. But Lyn (my model) had this really powerful gaze that I wanted to capture in my drawings, and with her nose ring . . . she was the perfect model for my Indian bride

Hmm... Then from one point of view you didn't, but from another point of view you actually did... ;)

Beautiful!
I love the veil (sp?)
I'm not all so knowing on what clothing is called what, but I so admire everything!
Even the facial structure, the deisgned hands. Everything,

Thanks Jen

I used to do henna designs by the beach during the 1990s and seeing an Indian bridal design made me want to try the same imagery in my drawing . . . hence this piece which started my bridal sries
