Artist's description:

The idea is based on a little stone like statue I picked up at the market long ago, which is now tied to a tree in the garden… I was keen to paint it on the textured thick parchment paper to bring out the stone relic feel to the subject. The tongues is just added humour to this whimsical painting!
The paper I used is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. It is a thick parchment 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. This texture is a crucial factor to the overall effect of this painting. Third is a perspective picture ... with me going 'statuesque'!
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me. Take a glimpse into this artist, and how step by step I build my paintings in my albums at the following link:
