Artist's description:

acrylic color Thai handmade mulberry paper (kada sa), 21 x 31 in., 55 x 77 cm.
I just couldn't help doing this painting. It’s just overflowing with humour. Inspired from ‘sunkiss’ photos. Thanks for sharing your pictures from fantasy fest!
This one has quite a 'noisy' background which adds wonderfully to the mood and motion of the project. And I feel I've managed to steer away from illustration mode in favour of something more expressive, out of which the subject is formed.
Here I am using a traditional handmade mulberry paper from Thailand. It’s a thick parchment type 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 better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting. Then there’s the work in progress, and the photoshoot.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel or event, portrait? Contact me.

About framing this painting.
When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.
