As a painter, there are often colours that I’m drawn to, and the use of orange is a good example. During the past year, I have visited botanical gardens, and various garden centres and just simply observed people’s choices and purchases of pots. I have enjoyed seeing both adults and children brimming with smiles and excitement at the colours, and trying their very best to choose pots which match with plants. One afternoon, I came across a lovely fellow and he chatted about his love of Begonias, with their patterned leaves. His passion and knowledge of everything concerning indoor plants was amazing, and “Boho Pots,” simply grew out of my need to express that interaction. It is one of my favourite paintings to date, because of its uniqueness, orange pot, and spotted Begonia, sitting against a rugged brick wall.
