The Lakehouse, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.A short vacation, a winding drive up the mountains, my home for four days.The Highlands weren't as cool or as tranquil as I had wished for, nor as serene and calm as it had been advertised - the air was warm, the streets were noisy, buildings and roads were horribly neglected, and drivers drove like they were rushing for a funeral.But here, at the Lakehouse, I found quiet refuge, warm people, and a very beautiful woman beside me.
On the morrow, I would return to a clean, safe, and ungracious society.I wish I didn’t have to.
(I started this painting at 6pm, and dusk was setting in quickly.Halfway through, I couldn’t tell the colours apart, and by 7, I was painting blind.I only found out what the painting actually looked like when I brought it back to the room.Considering the circumstances, this was quite a miracle.)
