Primrose, Primula vulgaris

Primroses are nice little plants. The word “vulgaris” unintentionally got my attention. Is this plant ordinary or abusive? It turned out that I was not up to date on the meaning of Latin adjectives. It just means common.

So here I painted this common but beautiful primrose plant. In this plant there are no vivid reds so that would not cause any issues. I tried two backgrounds: One light and one dark. Both have something special. I can see I brushed vigorously because there is no hesitation in these paintings. Nice!

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
