In 1997 I received a postcard of a fat nude lady from my friend. We did sports together and sometimes we weren’t feeling like it and instead rent a movie and eat chips, drop (a Dutch liquorice kind of candy) and cookies. We were thin back then, but with this postcard my friend said: ‘our bodies are not so bad’. I was inspired to paint this postcard and succeeded pretty much. I will not show it here, because some people might nog like it because of the nude part.
I show you the painting I made next instead (see above). It is almost 20 years ago, maybe I will try some nude in the future again and see if my painting has improved on this theme.
