Acrylic poster colors on canvas
No Flowers at the Florist
About 10 years ago I went to India. Almost on the first day I encountered a really nice person from Germany. I spent a my days buying fabric, making patterns and designing clothes or painting walls. Me and her had a very creative connection and we'd also end up visiting fabric shops together. She had bought a sewing machine and kept making really cool stuff too. Once, she gave me a bag she had sown. I painted it and gave it back to her for her birthday much later. I think she liked it. She knitted a shal for me...
About a year in, I knew she was going to go back to Germany and I might never see her again. At times our communication didn't need any words. I wanted to get her some flowers and I thought of sunflowers. Unfortunately there weren't any florists in the area that sold sunflowers. I had no idea sunflowers were actually her favorite flowers. I decided to paint her in a field of sunflowers and gave her the painting before she left.
We met for a short walk in Berlin about 4 years later.
I recently found a copy of the original canvas that I had scanned and printed in an old box. I decided to take a picture with my phone before the box went back into my attic.
