After the feast, “gråtende peon” – crying peony – or maybe there are other reasons (watercolor on paper).
With the back towards the feast (watercolor on paper, from life!!). Epicurus (born 341 BC on Samos), warned us (or those at that time) that shopping didn’t bring you happiness. Epicurian wrote his own list of happiness constituting friendship, freedom and thought. Mathematics (all painters should know their mathematics well!) where used to plot the Epicurian relation between money and happiness. I truly hope most of you already know that there is no linear relation between amount of money spend and level of happiness….
