Passion with Fashion and Art

Painting in Thailand, Mana Gallery and Studios, Pattaya. 2018

The start of a new year is the time I usually make my annual trip to my second home Thailand which is where I recharge and gain a lot of my inspiration.

I was luck enough this time to do some paintings while there in one of the countries leading galleries and where I hope to build a relationship with future work and connections in Asia

I did 3 paintings which will be going into an exhibition later in 2018 in Thailand which is to raise money for the Thai Red Cross Society, more info once we have it.

Painting to the right: The main painting in the series "Siam Beach" Acrylic and oil with gold leaf, measures 122cm x 122cm on a deep edge canvas. Price on request

Paintings below: "Ocean Energy" and "Window of Light" Acrylic and oil with gold leaf, measure 40cm x 50cm on thin edge canvas POR


A big thank you to Ann and Mana who invited me to come and paint and who also videoed me painting which can be seen on my Martin Bush Fine Art facebook page

This work was the crescendo to a 3 week trip around Thailand and as I painted I felt all the joys and visions that I had experienced meld within the marks and flow of the paint. I was tingling with emotion as I painted and the outcome expressed all of these emotions. They offered me some gold leaf which I explained all my recent paintings used and as I added this to the wet paint everything then seemed to make sense and the conclusions where pronounced as the final touches were made with poring gloss paint round the surface.


If you wish to see these paintings in Thailand and Mana Studios then here is a link to their facebook and their contact details


The paintings will be for sale later in the year but if your interested then do let us know.
