“Abandoned”

This is Yangon. The ex-capital is full of majestic colonial buildings, built by the British long time ago, which are now stood abandoned, discolored, blackened by time and tropical downpours, surrounded by overgrown gardens, with birds flying freely in and out of empty eye sockets of the windows.

” Peaceful island”

This was one of the tiny islands of Ao Phang-nga National Park in Thailand, so small I don’t even know if it has a name.

“Two apples”

I love the shapes and the difference between these two, so I thought they will make a good pair for the today’s painting.

“Dried Espelette peppers”

Today’s model – a bunch of dried Espelette papers, hanging in our kitchen. I bought it a long time ago, but with all my love of hot chilies, it is still there, untouched, because it looks so pretty on a string.

“Garden cafe, Bagan”

This painting is also from my travels in Burma. We stumbled upon this lovely little garden cafe in Bagan, an oasis of fresh greenery, which was a pleasant sight for the eyes tired from miles of orange-red dusty (although beautiful) landscape.

“Burmese village”

For today’s painting, I looked through my photos from the trip to Burma. It was an amazing trip, although tough one at times. The reference photo was taken from the train somewhere between Yangon and Bagan.
