To all my blogger friends and other visitors to my blog, thank you very much for your continuous visits and for always leaving beautiful and encouraging comments to my paintings and sketches. I honestly appreciate your efforts of taking time to visit this blog. I am wishing you all a very prosperous, healthy and blessed 2017. Cheers!
The building is called 'Het Vrijdag'. There, one can eat and drink, hold celebrations, meetings, workshops and receptions. See http://hetvrijdag.nl for more about the place. The site does not say about the building but it looks like an old Dutch farm house. It is about ten minutes walk from where I live.
Inspired by a rose from the garden of Louis and Eliza who are living in Enrum, Holland. When we visited them, I took some pictures of their roses and used one of them as reference for this painting. The original colors of the rose are somewhat light pink with a hint of orange. I used watercolors and arches paper.
We eat various fruits that are in season. But the fruits in the tray in this painting are the ones we take everyday. Other fruits can be absent but not banana, oranges and apples.
I wish everyone a nice and pleasant weekend.
