I live in a beautiful part of Thailand, so my art tells vivid and thought-provoking stories of my life, my land, and its people.
A very detailed original oil painting, I love the ancient dresses the Princesses used to wear, the whole costume is detailed with the finest silks and I've tried to capture that in this painting.
I love the colours and detail, look at the dragons in the background which traditionally symbolise potent and auspicious powers. The dragon is also a symbol of power and strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it.
The painting itself has very rich deep colours quite large with the side also painted so doesn't need a frame unless you want it but I think framed this would look impressive on any wall.
I sit at a clean canvas, my imagination, oils, brushes, knife and fingers ready to start work, I have an idea, I start to paint, my head is telling my hands what to do, but sometimes my head changes so I delete and start again and so it goes until I’m happy with my work, then sometimes I use a palette knife to cover the whole canvas in random strokes and I see something like a photo an image and follow my feelings.
I get a lot of my inspiration from three artist; Claude Monet with his use of colour, his expressiveness, detail and the softness of his beautiful paintings, Vincent van Gogh with his bold use of colour his expressiveness, and I like to think I’m a little impulsive like him, and Lowry unbelievable he produced the work he did just using five colours.
My art tells stories, not always happy and joyful, not always bright and full of light, but always full of my feelings, vivid, interesting and thought-provoking. I always try to put something of myself in my paintings; in the form, the colours, the brush stokes, my feelings, my joy, sometimes my darkness but I hope mostly joy and happiness.
