I just happened to have a few napkins, scrapbook paper, a canvas, paint, glue and other things lying around, so I thought why not make a painting of it all?
Actually I got an order from a customer who wanted a painting by me, size 50×61 centimeters. He gave me 30 days and free hands to create anything I’d like.
I went through my banana box of napkins, my pizza boxes of scrapbook paper and found all of this:
I painted the canvas and put all the paper and napkins together and – voilà!
This is how the painting turned out and, luckily, the customer was very satisfied!
It’s called ‘Little Black Rocks’ and reflects (to me) a story about life and time, and the things you never got to experience before the life was taken away; the loneliness and the longing for those cherry blossoms to bloom again, yet a bit of hope and the reminiscing of sweet memories shared.
