Welcome to another Soartful week.
My daughter and her husband are on a marvelous adventure
They are in exotic Thailand. They have been having such a
good time seeing all of the exotic sights of Thailand. Some of the
things they have been experiencing are riding elephants, seeing beautiful
temples, dining in a rice paddy and riding out a 6.9 earthquake.
Yes, this put a few extra gray hairs on my head. Bless Susan's heart
she emailed me right away that all was fine. It turned out they were
just 50 miles away from the epicenter. They were evacuated from their
hotel while it was checked for damage. There were some cracks in the building
but they were allowed back inside.
There is no real theme to my challenge this week. But,
I found this lovely painting here.
Famous Urban Landscape Paintings: Buddha Thailand Lime Painting/Print Artwork
I couldn't find out much about this lime painting but I did find some
Lime paint, a mineral based paint made from slaked lime and inorganic stable pigments, originated in ancient Rome in the 7th Century BC when the paint was used to embellish the outside of the home. Greeks and Romans also used lime paint in creating their famous fresco artwork, where they mixed earth colors with the lime plaster. Michelangelo and Raphael also used lime paint in their timeless creations,
I hope you find inspiration in this painting.
