A Tribute to His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan Through Oil Portrait Art

On the historic celebration of 60th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the Fourth King of Bhutan, I join all Bhutanese and bloggers in paying Tribute to our Great King who has been the "Father of Modern Bhutan" and "Founding Author of Gross National Happiness". 

Let oil portrait of His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan that I have painted serve as a testimony of the deep respect and loyalty of every Bhutanese to their Great King. 

Oil Portrait of His Majesty the 4th King - Then
This painting is actually a retouch of the old painting that I had done as far back in December 2003 which is almost 12 years old. And there never was such a befitting occasion such as this to correct the imminent flaws in the painting which I was aware of. Finally I have been able to refine the flaws in this art - which is no greater than a King's portrait.       

All peace, happiness and vast economic development that every Bhutanese enjoy at present are undoubtedly the seeds of His Majesty's selfless service to the Nation during his 34 years of golden reign. Bhutan had never had a Heroic Ruler like the 4th King who even sacrificed His own precious life in protecting the sovereignty of the Nation and life of every Bhutanese. We are really fortunate to have born in Bhutan under such a selfless and visionary King. Will Bhutan ever have such a great King like HIM in future???

This portrait still needs some further refinements and finishing touches. Nevertheless viewers and bloggers can enjoy viewing the art. 

As we celebrate 60th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty, let us all rededicated our unwavering loyalty and services to the King, People and Nation and offer our solemn prayers in wishing His Majesty the Fourth King of Bhutan a very long life. Happy Birthday, Your Majesty!!!
