New- Brazilian and Guatemalan Close-Up Matryoshka Portraits!

Brazilian and Guatemalan Close-Up Matryoshka Portraits
I enjoy learning about different cultures when I'm doing research for my matryoshka drawings. Because we have adopted a child internationally we know children from lots of different cultures which makes it even more interesting to me. Such is the case with the Guatemalan Girl Matryoshka. I have had several requests for a Brazilian Matryoshka. I've never been to Brazil but my husband Eric is a musician and we love Bossa Nova music. While researching I enjoyed seeing all the examples of traditional Bahian dress with its long full skirts. Both are such beautiful cultures.
