"Yurok Girl" by Michelle Murphy-Ferguson 10" x 8" 25cm x 20cm oil on canvas board
Every Thursday artists gather in my studio
to paint a live model for three hours.
This young woman from the Yurok Tribe
brought with her some native adornments
and my artist friends seated her in
this pose. I am quite fond of all Western
painters from past to present day and so
was thrilled to be able to paint this beautiful
proud young woman with such great heritage.
