Following on from the aftermath of the powerful earthquake in Nepal, I wanted to find some way that I could help this horrible situation, I couldn’t bear to think about the devastation that this earthquake had left behind and I just wanted to do something, anything!
It was not long ago since I had visited this great country – I got to know and love the people – I wept for their poverty and I rejoiced in their good nature, their sensitivity, their gentile ways and sense of hope.
I decided that I would create a painting of Nyatapola Temple, one of the few buildings that remained intact, I would raffle it and this would help to fundraise for this worthy cause.
In light of the recent devastation in Nepal, that has claimed the lives of over 6,000 of its people, I am asking that you give whatever you can afford. Your name will go into a raffle which will take place on Sunday 10th May and you could own this painting. I will donate 100% of the proceeds to the Nepal emergency fund.
Bhaktapur, founded in 12th century, is the ‘city of devotees’ and looks just like a medieval city built of brick and ornate wood carvings. It is one of the three royal cities in the Kathmandu valley and is considered a cultural gem.
