The inspiration for this painting was a photo I have taken with a piece of wood. I was really intrigued by the structure and the texture of the wood. At first I wanted to paint something realistic, but when I decided to work with pink, red and orange the outcome changed completely. What I really like about this painting is the contrast between the surfaces which are more pictorial and the white and yellow ones where I drew some lines with oil pastels. I feel this kind of contrast gives the artwork more depth.
