In January of 2008 I spent a week in Bali. After talking to some local artists, they agreed to give me some painting lessons. For a whole week straight all I did was paint. Get up at 9AM, spent half the day painting alongside Made Jelih, then spent the other half of the day painting with Budih Karyono till late in the night.
It was the best vacation ever. I learned so much about paint in such a short amount of time. I also learned how to squat really well since they didn’t have chairs.
As tourists came by I helped them sell their art work. I felt like I was part of the artist community. At the end of the week Made took me out to some local surf spots.
