This painting takes me back to my time in Thailand–even though it comes from a photo taken in India. It truly speaks to me of what I miss. I hope you’ll enjoy this art by Laurie Bostian which is inspired by John Grant– a very talented fellow in Ireland. Visit them and enjoy.

John Grant’s work inspires me. Takes me places. It makes me laugh and hope and wonder. During the creation of this piece, I wondered about the conversations they might be having out there. I wondered what quiet thoughts were going through their minds. I wondered if they were running down a checklist of things to do after that task was done. I wondered what the temperature of that water was. I wondered what their personal struggles were. I wondered what they looked forward to.
The beautiful thing about painting figures is the opportunity it affords me to put myself in the place of another for just a short time.
Thanks again, John Grant. It was a pleasure.
