Mrs. Shin is a Korean artist of 80 years old.
This painting is so beautiful. A woman holding a leash of a small black goat is walking up to her house slowly and peacefully. But the goat looks more like her friend to accompany her to a hut up the street. Blue/black background indicates the fall/winter season. Her hair is tied in a bundle. She is wearing a modest traditional Korean dress. It portrays a simple life in the country side beautifully. This artist captured a timeless moment of this woman's life where she is at peace with her environment.
