Koharig



Koharig is Armenian.  She lived in Egypt for most of her life before her husband and she had to leave during the turmoil of the past few years.  Today she paints in her Naples studio.

.....Koharig looks very happy here in her new country Jack, but it must be so difficult having to leave your country for political reasons. Sometimes when I'm throwing paint around :) I wish I had a studio!

It's wonderful that Koharig has found a place where she can live comfortably and continue to practice her art!

Another splendid post, Jack. Your people always come right off the screen so wonderfully. Thanks!

What a smile! It looks like she has some very interesting artwork in the background.

Such a lovely smile for someone who probably hasn't had it easy...

And what a wonderfully bright studio she has found! Great portrait, Jack!

Glad things came right for her. What splendid glasses, They would not suit me but part of me wishes I could be so flamboyant and carry it off as she does.

Sheesh. You've been bombed by the anonymous cretin. I can only say it's a blessing he'll stay out of the U.S. gene pool.
And good for Koharig. She's lucky that she had the means to escape. Nice portrait.

She certainly looks like a woman full of life.

Sort of a hell to heaven transition from the look on her face and her surroundings. Love the shirt and glasses color combo. It tells us something about her personality.

Love her glasses and smile.
