new painting } the eves and thilo
I finished this painting around ten days ago, and instead of photographing myself with it as I usually do with my finished paintings, I wanted to share that fun with a few of the special women in my life. Thanks to my sister Yasmine for thinking about asking her colleague photographer Thilo Mayer to take the pictures, which he so generously did. It was so spontaneous, and what was going to be an afternoon of fun with my girlfriends turned into an afternoon of fun with my girlfriends and Thilo! Oh, and Eve, who is currently staying with Fatma Bodoma, but I’ll leave that for another post.
The day of the ‘shoot’. I was so excited about this day. We met at 4 pm on a sunny, breezy Saturday. Some Eves couldn’t make it, so ultimately I was joined by my sister Yasmine, sister-in-law Jana, Lubna, Deema, Xeina and Fatma. Oh and Thilo. A big thank you and applause to Thilo, who without him we wouldn’t have had these wonderful shots.
We introduced Thilo to Boomerang. I had to exercise great restraint in order to stay still. They had all the fun. Music is House of Fun by Madness.
