Congrats on your sale!

Thanks Uuganbayar! What an honor to receive your comment! I have not been to Mongolia but I lived with Tibetans for many years, and also met many people from Kalmykia and Buriat. This textile portrait was based on a photo taken by a friend of mine who DID visit Mongolia. He loved it, and I loved his stories and these wonderful people's faces. The clothing is very similar to the Ladakhis' I've been in Ladakh many times too. Much culture is shared across these regions. But I'm sure there are many differences too, as each region had it's own experiences, its own history. Thank you for your compliments. Please share my work with others who might enjoy it. All the best, Leslie

Wow great. I am Mongolia. So this is great job. How do you know our life style?:D

She looks like she's not buying his story, doesn't she? I love her too! I still feel like these three characters are talking to me every time I see them. Thanks, Beverly! Your work is beautiful too!

OMG I love the look on the lady in the middle , so much talent love your art

Thanks, Judity and Xafira! I love these three characters. They keep me company and keep me smiling.

How very sweet !!!

This is wonderful,great style

Yes, as you say, Kimberly. This is ancient technique applied to modern imagery and incorporating new materials. I'm glad the dual nature came across. It's what I feel as a contemporary western person working in a traditional sacred art.

Love your technique! What may be old seems new again - or this an original way to intertwine many techniques. Which ever - there seems to be a modern/ ancient dual feel to your work.

Thanks Shirley!

I just read about your recent sale on the front page. Congratulation! I discovered this (among others) beautiful piece in your gallery. It is truly wonderful. Thank you.

Thanks, Mike and Carol! How nice to find your comments today. I also sometimes feel I can hear the conversation these three are having. They've become good friends of mine. Carol, I read your bio and strongly agree with your perspective that "art should uplift, inspire, educate and challenge the viewer’s mind, heart and soul."

So nice, I Love this - really lively, great artistitic language and communication = what art is all about...........

A beautiful work of art. I love the way you have defined the nuance of each personality by their facial expressions. I can almost imagine what they are saying. Congratulations!
