The first solo international art business took place this past two weeks from November 30 to December 19, 2017. This was the first time ever that I market my artwork overeas that was on the bucket list and from the Asia continent.
The first live painting show took place on Friday, December 1st, 2017 at the skywalk condo airbnb resort that I was staying at in Bangkok, Thailand. The view city by the rooftop was just a outstanding beautiful with really clear blue water coming from the infinity pool. That's why I decided to put this on a canvas by bring it to life.

Thailand was an great, awesome, fantastic, beautiful, amazing, outstanding experience of a lifetime that I had in my 30 years of living on this earth. I got to new people, make new friends, locals, and expats basically two that wants me to do commission requests for them. I met a guy from Australia and his mother that wants me to do two upcoming paintings for them. The guy lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand and he works at a bar that's build inside the resort hostel I was staying at. He was so admire by my work he actually hangup my art business card behind his bar he works at. Plus he will hangup the painting at his bar that I will do for him. (see pic, below):
I was so sad of living Thailand this first solo international I did taught to face my fears, stress, disappointments, and patience. What I learn from fear is that don't be afraid to try something new and experience things. which are taking the first step by getting on that international plane, getting lost and not knowing where to go, dealing with language barriers and bad communication. I learn from stress was handling a long 17 hour long flight and dealing while in the long progress. Disappointment that things doesn't always turn out and work as plan. Everyone you meet on your solo trips are not going to interested in you. You going to meet people from other different cities, countries that's going to like you and not. Patience by learning to wait on other response by people interact totally different than others and also that things are not going to get done on time you expected to be.
I absolutely love this country and this trip to Thailand I already have plans going back again and this time whenever I go back to Thailand I will go to more island beaches, nature resorts, and village to do more live painting artwork.
This solo art business project trips for international is only the beginning of the start in my new chapter of my life. Can't wait to experience more in my life and go to more countries to meet new people amazing people.
