The painting is inspired by the typical Thai Buddha images I see Bangkok , I place I regularly return to.
The simple finish of this piece gives the whole thing a very parchment feel, old and classic.
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry 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 type paper, strong yet pliable. I have the paper made to this size to get the deckled edges which adds to the textural effect.
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.
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and envelope covering.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, antique item or a family portrait? Contact me.
