Can't wait to get my hands dirty

I started writing this post last month and then completely forgot to post it. It's been sitting in my Drafts folder since then. But I thought I'll post it anyway.

Last night, I saw some exquisite pieces of Art that my Uncle brought from his recent visit to Bali. In the past, I have appreciated an art piece mainly by thinking how difficult it must have been to create it. But last night one wooden sculpture absolutely blew me away. My first reaction was... this can't be real. This artist had carved dry cracked land with a footstep on a beautiful piece of wood. The inspiration to do something as wild and beautiful, was more significant that the craftsmanship for me. I actually got chills just by looking at how beautiful it was.

Well, the plan is for me to start sculpting with my Uncle once I return from my big end of the year trip. I can't wait for that.
