My goals for 2018 exists out of doing more stuff I love and see people I love more often. So when my girlfriend was about to turn 40 I thought it was a good idea to give her something special. I went to my parents for 3 a couple of days to make her this canvas. My mother really loves to paint and has all the gear I needed. Plus I was able to combine things. Seeing the ones I love more and creating something cool. so that was fun.
I hadn’t really done anything with painting in years, so for me it was quite a challenge to come up with something cool. Many, many years ago me and my girlfriend back then went to the Groninger Museum to a graffiti exhibition from the artist Seen. One piece really stood out for me and already back then I wanted to create something similar.
So with this, in my opinion, masterpiece in mind I started sketching.
