a few more paintings
drinking bird
I think I should post something new. I have some paintings to show.

This is a view of the Bagan plain in Myanmar where there are around 1000 temples and stupas. Some are in ruins, others still in use. They are quite ancient, having been built from the middle of the 11th century until the end of the 13th. It is a striking place, with an eerie atmosphere at times. Not too many tourists, as Myanmar does not attract large numbers of visitors. The roads being unpaved, it is dusty as well as hot, but truly worth a visit.

This one shows a street in a northern Morocco village. They seem all painted in blinding blue and white. They are also usually very clean, although here I caught an empty bag of chips probably dropped by a tourist. A lonely cat did not seem to find much.

This is a marsh in the Camargue, an unusual French region of the Rhone delta. Flamingos actually summer here, and there are many water birds.

I am at work on a new project.

Sooooooooooooooo impressed!

Hope you don't mind the following questions...
Are you drawing for a living = is that your job?
Is the travelling related to your job? It seems as if you get around quite some (something I envy you for, though sometimes it's nice to not to have to travel a lot too ^^;;; *fails at grammar*)

*too lazy to wiki it now* Myanmar? Wasn't that where the typhoon hit last year so badly and the government didn't allow any other countries or organisations to help the people?

Painting & drawing are hobbies. Very hard to make a living with art, unless you are very lucky, or have a gimmick, or...and you need salesmanship.

Traveling is one of my other interests. I do as much as I can afford. Not to scratch places off a list, but because I am interested in them. I have a bit of a fixation on Japan right now.

Myanmar is the typhoon place. It used to be called Burma, the capital, now Yangon, used to be Rangoon (so many places have changed their names...It is a beautiful country.

so beautiful!!!although it's just ur hobby, i think it looks very professional:) How long have u learned to paint? Did u learn it on your own?

Is that a dog or sheep dragging the cart in the first painting? i like it a lot, it feels cool and comfortable.
I like that cat in the second painting too,good capture^^

So do u have to standing there to paint when u find a good view? Painting while traveling, u surely know how to enjoy ur life^^ *very envious*

It is a white ox, easier to see on the actual painting, which is of course a great deal larger.

I paint outside only in the US: too much equipment to carry around on airplanes. I take several photos of things that interest me and go from there.

oic. love ur paintings! u should really consider selling them :)

wow your works never fail to amaze me! :)

Thanks for the compliments! It is always pleasing.
