Saturday work day: an overly friendly fluffy rug, gentle sunshine, jolly French music, naughty Mimosas, a somewhat tempting pond, Lightroom and some loved ones. Life could get harder… #saturday #mylife  (at 18 on Crox Guest House Cape Town)

罪人 + 情人
When talking about appreciation of art and people say something along the lines of “that piece really ‘spoke’ to me” I roll my eyes. But last night it finally happened. I walked into an African Craft market (of all places) and this painting that was on the floor, slightly hidden away, immediately caught my attention, and I completely and utterly fell in love with it. {I suppose in retrospect it grabbed me because of all the relevance it has to my life right now, I am always somehow drawn to water - literally and metaphorically speaking}. I felt I needed to somehow have it in my life, but didn’t think it possible and quickly forced myself to come to terms with it and let it go. I showed a picture of it I’d taken on my phone to Jürgen {a person I think of as my ‘other half’, and someone who’s opinion I hold in extraordinarily high regard}, expressing my new bizarre fixation for this piece, and he loved it so much that he bought it for the house! Nothing like that’s ever happened to me - it may be memories I have from my childhood but I do often tend to think of my opinion as unvalued and unimportant {I am my own worst critic}. This may sound disgustingly juvenile, but I’m also not familiar with the feeling of getting what I want, more so when it comes to getting things (I am quite used to getting my way I think). I can’t really express how happy it made me in words, other than to say it’s a rush of emotion I’ve never experienced and can only hope I’ll experience again some day in this life time.
Olivia (the artist) quickly wrapped it up in bubble wrap, and from the moment it left that room it became a part of us, of Jürgen and I and everyone else in our lives. Upon arriving home in the early hours of the morning, the three of us (we now had a third companion) stood there in awe of this painting, unravelling it, contemplating… Adoring {it and each other}. It’s a night I’ll always remember and cherish as one of the most exciting and fantastic things that ever happened to me.
The piece is called “Into the Blue”, painted by artist Olivia Bouwer who I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting to last night.
