......... This artwork is pretty meaningful to me as it's a piece about some of the parts of my teenage years that crossed over with my girlfriend's teenage years.
Tegan and Sara have been @badbegummusic 's role models from the first time she came across their music. I have lost count of the number of times I have seen her cry or laugh or gush about a song of theirs and so even though I am indifferent about them, I acknowledge how significantly they are a part of her life, and how much they inspire her to be her best self everyday.
On the other hand the movie "Chocolat" is a complete reverse situation for Bad and I. When I first watched this movie on TV5, I fell in love with the quaint town, the mysterious life of this enchanting woman, and the whole cast of the show as well as the way the film was shot and producted. From this one movie, I was so inspired that I took up chocolate making classes, joined an acting club in secondary school and even swore to live the life of a gypsy nomad, certain that I too would have a child without a partner and live free, to be blown from place to place with ease.
Aside from these two big elements in this piece, there are many other parts like the paint tubes and brushes which link us both, as we both did art and at significant times of our lives, we both were art teachers.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, I love these memories more, as they are shared experiences with the woman I love, even before I met her. It's like we were friends, even when we were apart. 🥰💕 Ahh.. I'm being weird I know.
