Painting – Searching for the sun

Gloomy Berlin calls for some sunflowers



Painting – Complications

Today I wanted to make something more abstract that could maybe go in the living room. Just like what it is meant to represent, the painting itself had some complications and didn’t come out quite right. However, part of this journey is learning and today I learned that flour mixed with acrylic makes a cool plaster-like texture, so there is a win.



As summer approaches in Berlin I am reminded of beautiful summers in Pretoria. In Berlin we have many cherry blossoms colouring our daily path. In Pretoria we had purple Jacarandas creating a purple carpet over the roads. They are also smelly, slippery and drink all the water around them, but let’s focus on the beauty for now.
