a gift.

My friend brought this for me from Myanmar. It’s hanging on my fridge now with the help of six magnets. Should get it framed soon.

The artist’s name is Ko Ko Aung. That’s all I know about him.

Visit my friend. She has a nice blog here.

“Brooklyn Bridge-III“, 

Oil on canvas, 14″x20″







My college had this basement photo archive with light like this and a stone staircase. This painting reminds me of that room and combines two of my favourite elements, light and a spiral staircase.

The age and size of this tiny piece also fascinates me. I can’t help but wonder how it would look cleaned up. (Varnish on old painting become yellow with age).
