In the winter of 2009- 2010 I was in Indonesia and Malaysia for a couple of months. The first weeks I stayed with friends and painted in an extra room in their beautiful house. After two weeks I went to see the rest of Java. I took my canvas along, rolled up in a large socket that I carry with me. This way I could work everywhere.
After Indonesia I went to Malaysia, to Pulau Kecil, wich means ‘Small Island’. Indeed it was. The only thing that could be done there was diving, surfing and catamaran sailing. So those were the things I would do during the cooler morning. In the afternoon I painted in the shade of the little patio of my island house.
