It’s July. As soon as you make a step out of the city, you encounter fields, painted in yellow. Fields which seem to be worshiping their master – the Sun. Yes, those sunflower fields are beyond beautiful. Symbolic of the romantic and burning summer. Symbolic of freedom and light-heartedness. They remind how much more beautiful and inspiring one can be, if only looking straight and up, but never down.
Probably Irina was as beautiful and as inspiring as those sunflowers. The Bulgarian actress, who became Hundertwasser’s muse for painting one of his emblematic masterpieces – “Irinaland über dem Balkan”. She shines like the sun in the painter’s idealistic world, full of colorful and eccentric buildings. It’s truly wonderful that the beauty of a Bulgarian woman was the very inspiration for an author as colorful as Hundertwasser.
Does it ring a bell why I am writing all this? Usually, when I start discussing artworks with such passion and love, FREYWILLE is being involved. Today is not an exception. Inspired by one of Hundertwasser’s sunniest artworks, FREYWILLE created a shiny and colorful design, which itself is an inspiration. Even if one doesn’t pass by sunflower fields every day, the jewelleries are beautiful enough to excite a smile on one’s face – with all their prettiness and the faerie reality they are portraying. And all this gets me thinking – why couldn’t the world be as colorful as Hundertwasser’s perceptions of it…
It can be. Of course, it can. As they say – beauty is nowhere else but in the eyes of the beholder. That’s why I’m wishing you much beauty in your eyes. And sun! Be like the sunflowers – keep your face to the sunshine and you won’t see shadows. Happy July Monday!
