I'm back here in Holland after more than two months of being away. I decided not to blog during that period because I found it difficult to blog while on a trip and busy doing things other than painting. But what surprised me was that it took sometime before I could start painting again. I didn't exactly know why but I suspected that I was probably tired from my trip to the tropics. Or maybe I lost my enthusiam to paint as a result of being away from my painting world. Although I brought with me some painting materials, I hardly touched them. I could only make some sketches which I sent as cards to some family members. Below is a simple sketch of an Adenium plant which is almost everywhere in Southeast Asia. In general I had enjoyed the trip and probably next year I'll be there again.
