Artist's description:

The painting is inspired by typical scenes I see on the Chao Phraya river that crosses through Bangkok , a city I regularly return to. The longtail taxi boats are a classic icon on the river .I have worked with this subject before and another version of this I did years ago is hanging on someone’s wall somewhere...
This painting is on textured Thai handmade mulberry paper in 11.5 x 13.5 inches
Mulberry paper is a traditional paper handmade in Thailand. Mulberry leaves are used there to feed the silkworm in the silk industry, the sticks used to make the paper. The resulting paper is a thick parchment like paper, strong yet pliable. I have the paper made to this size to get the deckled edges which adds to the textural effect. The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, scenery or a family portrait? Contact me.
Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 6 paintings of this same size (small painting category) or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
