Portrait reflections...



I'm a little late in posting these shots from an exhibition I went to in June this year, as many of you know the blog came to a standstill for most of July due to the worst possible circumstances, but I really wanted to show the work of the incredibly talented Natalie de Rozario. Her drawing skills developed while living in the Buddhist influenced city of Chiang Mai, Thailand.. later completing her Bachelor of Arts Degree in London before heading off to explore West and Eastern Europe. Below on the opposite wall of the gallery the 'Aboriginal Child' drawing reflected in Natalie's self portrait. Oh to have so much talent, if only! Have a wonderful and safe, I will eventually stop highlighting the safe :) weekend, take care...

  1. Gorgeous photos and wonderful photographic shots of them. I've been to Chiang Mai and loved it! I almost had DH convinced to take a leave-of-absence so I could teach there in an international school, but then 9/11 came along and we decided to stay in the USA. Shortly thereafter I retired. End of story!!

  4. Beautiful works, Grace!
    Why, no, point out the safe. I´m glad and thankful each day I have to drive when I see our "long Henry" and made it home safely. So many, so powerful cars on the road and often dumb or drugged drivers (or both). People who don´t remember that IF something happens there is a full second the brain needs to tell the feet/hands what to do and how many meters you rush forwards in that second. So much can happen. I am very sorry for your loss. You just can´t get over it in a rush, and you shouldn´t try to, I think (my 2 cents). A blog is an outlet, amongst other...

  8. What fabulous portraits. And thanks for the safe wishes as we're flying off into the blue this weekend, kicking off a very long string of trips. Forgive me if my comments are a bit sparse for the next two months. OK, they're already sparse, but I mean really sparse.

  10. She's very talented. Curiously enough, Chiang Mai is a city I really want to explore and plan to do so on my next Far East trip.

  12. Beautiful restatements of the art. Just the right touch of reflections.

    Chang Mai is a wonderful place. There is a little plaza in the center with a sign that says "Monk Chat." Have a seat and a talk in English with a Buddhist monk on the topic of your choice.
