Barrel painting.




Yesterday I spent the day painting a wine barrel. A local organisation in Rotterdam, promoting vegan cuisine and a green lifestyle, is doing this project where they are  going to plant fruit trees in these wine barrels.  They’ll place these barrels in the  middle of the city.  The idea is that locals will take care of these trees and eventually be able to grow fruit from them.

To bring a little more colour to the whole thing they asked people to paint them. So me and a couple of other artists took out a day to add our personal touch.

I had no idea what to expect of the end result, as I didn’t have a plan going in. I also hadn’t touched an actual paintbrush in years, but I actually think it turned out pretty neat for something made in an afternoon.  I might do some more paintings soon because this was a lot of fun to do.

Also, check out the work (from left to right) of Stephan BrusscheAimee de Jongh and Kenny Rubenis who painted the other barrels that you can see in the second photo.
