Underwater Love

I paint a lot of flowers. And I love it. But among all the pink flowers a subtheme has emerged - underwater (like here and here). You could think, that for someone who grew up on the sea (the Baltic Sea, to be precise) this wouldn't be an usual longing. But I have to tell you, that I have never felt a special bond with the sea and am not a beach bum (strangely, a lot of our vacation involve oceans...).

I would like to share with you a second painting I painted during the Bloom True e-course with Flora Bowley. Actually, it was the first one and the one that took the longest process to come together.

It went through a couple of different stages.

And then the jellyfish appeared ...

... and disappeared again.

One jellyfish wanted to come back
and swim in the final painting.

Whatever this means.
