Tarahumara Music Man

Tarahumara Music Man

We ran into this guy and two of his buddies not far from Copper Canyon in northern Mexico, an area populated largely by the Tarahumara people. There were several of us, so he sang a little while a hat was passed around to earn a bit of income from the gig, while the ‘buddies’ stood and grinned, no doubt impressed by their good fortune. I snapped a couple of shots and painted him after we got back home. (Oil on canvas, 20×24)
