In 2017 kreeg ik een onverwacht berichtje. Daisy had een van mijn foto's gezien en vroeg of ze deze mocht gebruiken om te oefenen met tekenen. Daar stemde ik mee in, met het verzoek of ze wel het resultaat wilde delen.

Ik was verbluft, zo realistisch, zo sprekend dat ik zelfs de persoonlijkheid erin kon herkennen, dat ik direct vroeg of ik haar 'oefenproject' ook kon kopen. En sinds dien hangt de tekening prachtig ingelijst aan de muur, nog steeds op een ere plekje. Ik ben er nog steeds heel blij mee dat ik in 2017 dat onverwachte berichtje kreeg.

Super mooie tekeningen. Tekent heel realistisch, lijkt alsof de tekening leeft.
