Love and Hate


Strange what can inspire. We live close to the forest where there are a lot of deer and these beautiful creatures like to take a walk into my garden. They are so beautiful to look at, but when spring comes and the tulip bulbs start to sprout, the deer are not fun to have in the garden. Hence the title of this picture: "Love and Hate". Painted in a slightly humorous, surreal representation where the temptations of the tulip lure these beautiful creatures into my garden. The painting was created in the first months of this year, 2022, and was perhaps a reminder to myself of what was to come.
