Blossom like a blooming flower
Year 1995, at Plum Village France I went to live a monastery at a community with Thich Nhat Hanh.
Plum Village is a community in the south of France, near Bordeaux
Surrounded by vineyards, sunflower fields, plum orchards, as far as the eye can see.
I have been living here for many months.
So, I had the opportunity to have lunch with Thich Nhat Hanh.
With 3 hours of conversation, being in the present with him felt me in his moment and I had that experience too.
On the dining table, there are summer flowers. Placed in three small cups, one cup at a time, I felt a profound beauty. in the mind of the chosen and arranged to see.
I wrote a song – “Blooming flower”
like a blooming flower
like a cold stream
like a gentle air
It’s been 26 years
I never thought that this song will influence my life. and how much of my painting.
Music has entered to people’s lives.
Millions of children over the last 26 years have been singing almost every morning at kindergarten, likewise almost everywhere in Thailand
is the exhilaration of the mind
is the quality of vision, the freshness of life at the present time
Outward appearance is the language of painting.
Where I contain positive energy is good feeling.
Looking at the world with hope and energize.
I want to paint in my way.
Inscribe to people heart
Give freshness and joy to the people
Let them spent their time pampering with my artworks
Leave my good energy to the world
