A while back I posted about some wall art that I’d eventually like to have in our bedroom. This is more along the lines of what I was thinking…. it’s from a local Thai restaurant by work. The whole interior of the restaurant is beautiful…. especially considering it’s in a strip mall! It’s all very ornate and well adorned, and all the lighting are pendant silk lamps like this one.
I think this mural would be relatively easy to do. I’d have to use 1 or 2 colors for the base color (green shown here), and dilute them so it produces a “whitewashed” effect. And then maybe project the figure onto the wall and stencil it on, then go back and paint it on afterwards. I don’t know if I’d do the Thai letters or not? That might look too graffiti-ish.
After all this, though, I still don’t know what I’d WANT to paint. This woman (goddess?) is cool, but there was also a beautiful maroon lotus flower on the other side of the wall. (I already felt like a big enough tourist snapping this photo, so I didn’t stick around long enough to get more.)
