This subject comes by way of my old friend Vineetha. When we met up last summer I asked her what the best place she ever traveled to was. Answer: Indonesia. After looking it up I was inspired to make a painting—I hope to go there some day.
The source photo for this was taken by my friend Clint Marsh. I met Clint at my friend Greg’s 40th birthday party after hearing about him for years. Clint is a published author and creator of Fiddler’s Green, a truly magical publication. Over the course of three days I fell in love with Clint’s peaceful disposition, humor, wit, and sincerity. I’m glad we’ve stayed in touch.
This is the first tiny landscape in a series of 30 paintings based upon photos from friends. Today’s source photo was provided by a different Ben Husmann. This Ben and I connected a few years back on instagram thanks to our sharing a name. I’ve enjoyed following his photos over the years.
