Title: Livi from Malang
Size: 65 x 75 - Oil on canvas.
I met Livi in Malang when she was playing billiard in a popular sport cafe. Directly I was impressed by her wonderful aura. A few days later I met her again and we played billiard in the same place. And again I was impressed by her personality. Later this evening we had dinner together and I asked her to be my model so I could portray her.
At the moment I started to paint her there was a very special, positive tension between us.... and I captured exactly the moment how she looked.... wise, a bit shy, melancholic, but also open.... anyway I was like her very much at the moment I paint her.
