This is a group intently watching the games at the ISB reunion.  I am really trying to be loose here but still capture the essence of the personalities in this piece.  It was hard to walk away without nitpicking and getting into more detail but I am happy with where it landed.

Singha - International School of Bangkok all Classes Reunion - 2014

$150

Singha is the beverage of choice for the ISB crowd.  I don't even know where they get it but it shows up at every reunion!  I chose to paint a bottle...so unlike me as I usually stick with figures and portraits...but I thought this truly represented ISB.  So it is a portrait of sorts.  

My bottle of Singha beer is a continuation of my 30 paintings in 30 days hosted by Leslie Saeta.

When we lived in Thailand we lived in a compound that held three houses.  Our landlord lived in one and the Mary Gardner and her family lived in the other.  Mary was in my brother's class...her sister Cassie was my classmate.  How fun to see Mary again at the ISB reunion and talk over old times.  She looks great and it at a wonderful place in her life.  Nice that even though we lost touch we still connect and had such fun reminiscing about the good old days.  

This is a continuation of my 30 paintings in 30 days challenged and hosted by Leslie Saeta.

International School of Bangkok Reunion 2014

Portrait sketch from the International School of Bangkok All Classes Reunion
8 x 8
Oil on Raymar panel

$150

I am continuing my 30 paintings in 30 days series.  I have painted every day but not posted every day.  Part of my challenge is to post only those paintings that I am happy with...and I have not been happy with a couple so...a couple of days were skipped.  THIS portrait, however, was so fun!  I just love her hair and what a great attitude.  Many thanks to Peppy Doggett for letting me use your fabulous photograph.

What could be better than yesterday's yellow napkin hat???  A RED napkin hat!  These hats may really take off...better stock up on some napkins.  I know I will attend the next ISB reunion with napkins in my suitcase...so I am prepared!  

This is a continuation of my 30 in 30 series.  Having great fun remembering all the great reunion moments!

Continuing with the ISB reunion theme this is one I just could not resist.  At one of the Thai dinners a contest is held where each of the participants makes a unique hat out of their napkin.  I don't know if there is a declared winner, but I LOVE this hat!  She wears it with such panache!!!  It is just fabulous!  

My 30 in 30 continues...
