As an artist that is inspired by his travels, the mystical land of Indonesia is his chosen muse for this piece. Sporadically arranged in a cloud-like mist, the piece is perhaps, as the title puts it, his own reflection on his travels and the things he had witnessed during his sojourn there. Various subjects adorn the canvas such as a jeep and an aircraft. This is perhaps an insight into the artist’s mind and his thoughts that bring his art to life.
