Day 23

“Houses on River Kwai”

On our Eastern and Oriental Express train trip from Singapore to Bangkok, one of the stops was Kanchanaburi, at the famous Bridge where Burma Railway crosses the river Kwai. It is a lot of confusion about which bridge was used in a movie with the same name, but in any case the bridge is intersting and surroundings  are picturesque.Oil on gessoed paper, 6″x 4″

 

 

Day 20

“Abandoned”

This is Yangon. The ex-capital is full of majestic colonial buildings, built by the British long time ago, which now stood abandoned, discolored, blackened by time and tropical downpours, surrounded by overgrown gardens, with birds flying freely in and out of empty eye sockets of the windows.

Day 19

” Peaceful island”

This was one of the tiny islands of Ao Phang-nga National Park in Thailand, so small I don’t even know if it had a name.
