Druk Yul 2001 – Bhutan

A prayer flag wraps the woodblock print I made of the wishing horse. A young man saw me sketching and took me to a secret meeting place where artists were making non-traditional art. We all painted together on handmade paper given to me by my new friends.

Painting at the  Teshu  festival in Paro  with drippy nosed litle boys hugging my knees.

  1. I do believe all the ideas you’ve offered in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.


    • Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. when I went to your blog I was reminded of that beautiful country and the fine people I met there. I plan to do a week on Bhutan . I’ll add stories, like the time I spilt ink on the carpet of my hotel room.Thanks again Carla
