At the beginning of this week my dear friend Syeda published an article about our friendship and art collaboration.
Stunned and overwhelmed I furiously began thinking about how I could express my gratitude to her.
The solution was obvious: I had to paint something especially for her!
But what, I wondered.
I searched my brain and the internet for ideas and images concerning friendship but didn´t find anything that “clicked” into place. After which I began thinking about what Syeda, a woman of many interests and passions, likes.
That´s when I remembered one of the many Arwards she´s been nominated for lately, one of which was the Spirit Animal Award.
That´s when I knew what I was going to paint!
So, this one is for you Syeda, my wonderful friend – I hope you like it 🙂
P.S. She might not be aware of it, but by writing this article and thus infusing me with the need to pay her back, she handed me the means to overcome a slightly severe case of painter´s block (yes, this actually does exist, I´m not making it up;), that I´ve been suffering from since January and tried to hide by engaging excessively in drawing instead.
So thank you again, Syeda!
