I painted this woman inspired by an article in a very old Nat. Geo. magazine featuring a story about Ethiopia and this unnamed woman in a B&W photo.
I used the colors I thought it should be.

Congratulations on your new sale
I recently had quite a few people inbox me about this painting. Mostly family telling me that she looks like me. I had to see for myself. I must say; I agree. Now I have to decide how I want it displayed in my house. Resembles my mother more.
J W Kelly replied:
I painted the Ethiopian Woman actually in the mid 1970's .At a studio where I worked I came across an old black and white photo that was torn out of a magazine, a National Geographic ??. It inspired me so I painted it in color the way I thought it should be done. Because it is old maybe it is your mother although I have no idea who it actually was I just liked her for art inspiration. I remain quite fond of the original and keep it in my own collection.
