Project: 10 Year
After we failed to have cacti in his room, I decided to bring flowers instead. At first, he didn’t like the idea that I’m buying him flowers. I didn’t mind since I bought it not only for him but for us. I still buy flowers occasionally and that is one of the things that makes me happy.
I made the same painting with oil before (see here). I recreated the picture with my own colors and it became part of my memory of the room. I thought when you have a certain experience and formed a memory of it, that was the destination. It’s certainly not true. I added this color and every time I see the picture or think about it, I add more feelings and meanings. It keeps growing with me. Memories fade with time. Special ones get lucky to stick around longer. I think his room is one of the lucky ones. I want to hold it forever.
