One of my favorite bloggers recently commissioned a custom miniature portrait. The young monk Lama Yongden who looks a bit like my aunt Gina. He apparently did some heavy hermit-ing and traveled with an ex-opera singer Alexandra David-Néel to Tibet. It’s too fun to read about and paint somebody unknown to me. If you still need something for the motherly figure in your life, check out the rest of my custom mini’s here.
