NaturaLily was created in 6 days. A similar painting was accepted for exhibition in Los Angeles, but was also rented out. Created a similar piece on loose canvas, rolled it in a tube and boarded the airplane. Final touches and stretching was made at an outside basketball court. A preferred habitat from a career in younger years. The gallerist accepted NaturaLily without commenting. For the trip I brought two other paintings. They were finished amongst basketball and handball courts at Venice Beach. Before the homeless took over the spots as the sun went down. Day after the reception at Shockboxx I met Luuk and Lysann in hostel kitchen. The following day we drove to San Diego. There I visited galleries, had existentialistic talks in another kitchen, and walked La Jolla Cove for the perfect sunset.
