View Full Version : Sala Flower - Greetings from Thailand

02-26-2011, 02:33 PM

This is my last week in Thailand and we look forward to going home (in a way).:)

In Thailand, this week starting from the full moon day was the celebration of the the Lord Buddha First lecture after Enlightment. This reminds me of a tree's Flower I painted at the end of last year, it is called Sala Flower. Sala trees are tall trees which produce flower from the trunk. The type of tree is important in Buddhism, the Lord Buddha was born and died under this type of trees.

My painting is in water color and from a photogranph I took from a Sala tree in a temple ground.

Any comments and advice are appreciated.

Very beautiful! I love flowers done in watercolour. The delicate beauty of the flowers are always rendered well in watercolours.

Thanks you all for nice comments.

Er....dear CaesYou didn't lose Your hand ... ar ", you mean to say "Don't lose your touch", correct sweet man:D?

We are flying Thai Airways to Los Angeles after so many years not flying with them. They pissed us off again by won't let us use the millage to upgrade!!!

Correct, dear Jasmine, :o but, You know, that idiomatic expressions are in many cases somehow different; here we use touch for lighter and almost impalpable interventions, such as adding the proper scarf or adjusting a curl, a tie knot, an appropriate spice to a meal etc., a touch of class, in a way, so .... :D

Another beautiful piece Jasmine!

Thanks Alexandra and Caesar.

Caesar, the beauty of learning another language is how to make it understood by the natives.

I think in English and switching from one language to another, especially from Latin based language to Thai (Sanskrit and Pali Based) can be a challenge. In French I seem to do better but still!!! You are doing well in English, especially the willingness to learn will surely make you go far.:)
