Thailand Grand Festival in Sydney 2009 was held on 14-15 March This year we had a special project Street Art & Culture which I had a chance to join for selling my paintings without any charges. That's a great opportunity. I met a lot of new friends and customers.
Lucky me!! I could sell about 43 paintings ($10.00 each) in this activity made me got enough money for the rent (room), food and train ticket for a week :) And.. Someones asked me to teach their children for painting. (Am I going to be a painting teacher? ) Someone from Brazil asked me to join their festival which is holding in Oct this year for painting birds, animals and plants from Brazil for selling as well. That sounds good, doesnt it?
Now I live in Honsby. it's a big suberb in Sydney. It takes about 40 minuts from the city by train. There is a big shipping mall similar to Central in Thailand. I took this picture a month ago. Now many trees here its leaves are falling down.
I had a chance to have a lunch at my friend's home.
I drew these pictures as a present for my friend's mum on her birth's day (her name is Robin) So I drew some Robins.
and I just knew that his Mum is also a bird watcher she has so many bird books!!
It's so long that I didn't update my blog due to I had a limited time to use the computer at my host home ( Interner cafe here, the charge rate is 120 Baht an hour) especially I don't have any camera despite I have done many paints and some pictures were sent to somebody as a gift.
Life in Sydney is not easy if you come alone don't know anybody here (or there is no connection). Somebody could not get any job even they came more than 3 months. But I was lucky that my aunt could help me to get a job (waiter & dishwasher) very quicky. At first my performance was not good by the owner eyes (or somebody eyes) but now everything is all right.
At college I have got many friends from many countries. Almost from Korea , some from South America, Japan and many Thai.
I think my English is a bit better than before but still not very well have to practice more and more ,
Thanks for visiting. See you next time with my paints.
