If you have been lucky enough to walk around one of those amazing temples in Thailand you might rememebr the heat. As I have been to quite a few I always remember dodging the direct sunlight and walk along the shadows whilst enjoying the amazing buddhist statues, colour and the buzz of the people around.

Then once you enter the actual buildings that is forgotten and the whole experience is suddenly tranquil and humbling at the same time.

Well this work was to capture that journey in a sort of dream like sespense and the views and hazey attatude in this painting is what I love, its like all the visits over the years to many temples all rolled into on like in a dream.
