This little painting of high up jungle and mountain vistas in Thailand comes with an equally little but layered story. . Often when you’re getting to know new groups of people, some take time to warm up to you and others just make you feel like you fit in right from day one. They listen to your stories and they seem to love your dreams almost as much as you do. It’s quite rare and totally wonderful. And it’s these types of encounters that stir up my desire to reach out and give something back. So when this couple journeyed to Thailand on a little lover’s getaway I got hold of one of their larger than life moments for one of my paintings. A big “thank you for seeing me even when you didn’t know how long I’d stick around” painted on a little piece of fabric.
