‘Bloeme’ (Painting 46)

Three weeks ago an Instagram notification popped up on my phone. I was, apparently, mentioned in someone’s post (which hardly ever happens), and to my great surprise it was a friend who made a collage inspired by a conversation we had some days prior.

It featured many flowers, a lot of red/pink tones, and a bikini-clad lady in the centre that drew my attention especially, as one might imagine.

Afterwards I started thinking of something I could create myself to repay the creation…but what…what to do…

Big surprise, I turned to my favourite hobby and made her a little gouache painting with my version of a flower…somewhat.

This strange Righart rose is for you, Mara.
