I never received the photos of Chrissy and me at the Dalai Lama's lecture at American College in D.C., but this is the spread that came as the result. I didn't realize I put a Christian priest on there until after the spread was done- I chose him for his robes (I love the color and texture). I can fully enjoy the irony now. Red is the color for good luck in the Tibetan culture so I chose to apply it here. The background is red and gold paint applied with a dry large horsehair brush, the resulting pattern looking like the weave of a piece of fabric.
