Nr 6

Nr 6

Original; oil on canvas 24x36 inches

‘My inspiration and urge to paint is the strongest whenever I see vibes I feel attracted to. Instagram is one of the places where my mind can drift off in the pictures that have found a perfect balance between color combinations, theme and text. I felt like my ‘Nr 9’ could not be on it’s own. So I looked for a lady on Instagram who would have an innocent and sweet expression my ‘Nr 9’ could fall in love with. I like to believe in the honesty of people and that they always have good intensions, but I have learned that innocence is one of the biggest lies there is. I don’t want to say that it has to be a bad thing, but it made me be more cautious and question things before believing everything right away. She is called ‘Nr 6’ because it was the latest painting to be finished of the ‘Clouds’ series, but also because the combination of the two creates number 69. Not so innocent after all.’
