If you have a look at this painting and the other two online here at RB I guess you’ll be able to sum up my work: surreal, symbolic and obsessed with eyes and flowers. In one of my more metaphoric moments in life this watercolour painting, The Circle of Life, was sketched onto paper with a beautiful little rose that I bought for my girlfriend as my model. I coloured it as usual with the contents of my trusty Talens watercolours box.

The circle of life actually is a recurring theme in my work as I’m currently working on a painting called “Rebirth”.

I know that the watercolour group likes to know which paper is used but alas, 1999 is a long time ago and I never pay much (ouch!) attention to the paper I use so I just don’t remember. Sorry guys and gals.

I sold the original under the motto: can’t keep them all, but I already regret that decision as it actually is one of my own personal favourites! The original is now in the hands of a private art collector in Veldwezelt.
