Longing for that evening
I remember the garden
where I used to walk
Alone among the flowers
as the sun drowned
into a warm summer night

Weeks later, the ornamental onion (allium) has finished blooming. Her exuberant colors fade to an earthy brown, seed pods form where the purple petals have sacrificed themself so the seeds can ripen.

And then the seed pods open, the seeds slowly becoming visible, until the flower is ready to release them and the earth takes care of them.

'Summer Evening' is an artwork in my collections 'Floral Souls'

General info on this artwork

This is a digital transformation of a photograph, printed with high-quality ink on museum-quality, acid-free cotton/rag paper (Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm). The work comes in a limited edition of 10, signed and with a certificate of authenticity. But of course, it is also available as Open Edition print, without signature and not numbered.

Maximum size is 225Wx150H cm / 90Wx60H inches. The work can be printed in any size up to that maximum, so please let me know the size you would prefer.

To create a transformed photograph like the ones you see here, I start with one or more photos made by myself. Then I use digital painting, color adjusting and adding and transforming multiple artistic effects, until a surrealistic atmosphere is created that touches me and tells the story I want to tell.

Prints are available, ask for a quote or contact me through a message. Prints are also available in my Saatchi Art portfolio at the artwork page .

ALL WE NEED IS LESS CONSUMING

Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke, on your actions to support the wellbeing of the earth and everything that lives on it, on what humanity loses when many of us continue on the destructive path of ever more greed and consuming, on how you can survive in this rapidly changing world…
