Chelsea won big in the DNA lotto and is an artist’s dream, what with her olive skin, dark hair, timeless features and sweet smile. She is also the photographer who inspired this series of portraits and who has lived and worked in India off and on for several years. Chelsea’s heart, her work with these children, and her exotic look inspired me to render her portrait in rich tones and metallic finishes. Chelsea may not be an actual saint, but I figured it was ok to make her look a bit like one here!
