“Challenge yourself with a painting project”, that’s what I did sometimes to try something new and challenge myself in a new way with the intention of encouraging me to explore new subjects and/or technique either it was personal or client’s project. Two weeks ago, I got a call from Mr. Bambang, the owner of Soerabaja Guest House in Surabaya, Indonesia. He told me that he was very interested with my painting, and wanted to have a collection of sketch Javanese traditional market and traditional music instrument made by me. Even though I have never drawn javanese art before, I know this is a challenge for me to get out of my comfort zone and learn something new and I’m very happy with my decision and the result. See more detail about these project of Soerabaja Guest House here : 10 Paintings of Memayu Hayuning Bawana and 10 Paintings of Jer Basuki Mawa Bea.
