At first, Raja wanted to commission a drawing of rusting war artillery in Vietnam, but his wife Sarah convinced him that a drawing of temples in Chiang Mai, Thailand would look better in their house.

While Lauren went to a cooking class one day, I sat outside Wat Phra Singh with my sketchbook. I started with water color, then added more details with pencils and markers. It was a sunny day and the sun gleamed off the tops of the Wat’s spires, so I incorporated gold foil from a Beer Chang bottle into the picture.
