About the painting Tropical Getaway Print: This is a print of my original painting and interpretation of the jungle landscape and two of the six traditional Thai-style houses of teak that make up the complex of the Jim Thompson House and museum in Bangkok. Jim Thompson was the founder of the world renowned Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company and a self-made American entrepreneur. Shrouded in mystery is his disappearance in 1967. Mr. Thompson went on vacation to the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia and reportedly went for a walk in the neighboring jungle and never returned.
While I love a good mystery, I love the lushness of tropical landscapes more and that's the reason I painted this scene. Tropical feel is what I strive for in my home and greenhouse... lush tropical plants and rich colors and tones. I was drawn to this Jim Thompson House Museum while searching for inspiration photos. The red of the bungalows and the green of the plants in a million different shades just sucked me right in. Plus, the story is so intriguing. I knew I had to paint it. Paint it heck! I wanted to recreate it for my own home! But alas, I am in zone 6 in the midwest. Inside plants year round with summer vacations in Studio Gardens for me and no chance of disappearing in the Cameron Highlands, whatever they are. Maybe someday I'll see it in person. Until then, I'll just paint my own tropics.
