Artist's description:

Another item going back some time... This is a painting of a friend of mine. It's an attempt to work a portrait type painting on this paper, in this small size. The texture of this type of paper is amazing, but it also absorbs paint like a blotter paper!
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 paper, strong yet pliable.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
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 portrait, family portrait, a storyboard collage from a recent travel, event or performance? Contact me.
