T H E K I N G S of T H A I L A N D
My wife and I lived in Bangkok, Thailand for a year.
I was an art instructor for grades 1 thru 5 at Kasetsart University.
During our stay, I was fortunate to meet Mr. Nopdol Tumwattana, a prominent businessman and entrepreneur. He was nearing completion of a new palatial residence in Bangkok, and wanted paintings of his parents, and depictions of the humble beginnings of the now thriving market his Mother founded. In addition, he commissioned portraits of the nine Kings of Thailand (six of which are shown here), which adorn a wall of the formal dinning room.
