Patina of Ubud (2)

oil pastel and coloured pencil, 19cmx21cm
Patina has several meanings but the one I’m thinking about is ‘a surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use’ (miriam-webster.com). The background of this picture has been inspired by a front entrance door put together by artist Stacey and carpenter Ulin from old pieces of carved teak wood he has sourced from Java. The three bowls? Traces of old beauty is everywhere in Ubud – temples and compound houses with their ornate shrines and pavillions.
