Here is a recently completed commissioned Thailand painting, based on two separate photos provided by customer. One photo featured beach, water, and those beautiful vertical cliffs. Another – orange wooden boats, frequently seen in Thai waters. I have been to Thailand, but so far – only to Bangkok, and not the “postcard Thailand” – beaches, small villages, etc. That visit was a quickie stop after spending 3 weeks traversing through Cambodia and Vietnam, and of course, I thirst to return to Thailand and see the rest. Needless to say, the subject matter of this commission got me very excited. It was a pleasure to create this piece with acrylics on a 22×28 canvas. Now the painting has traveled to Texas, and happily lives there above a fireplace, bringing back memories of what I am sure was a magical trip.
The title of this piece is Sawadee Ka – a Thai greeting.
Below are a few painting progress photos, and the final result.
