Corona Solis (hotel)

22" x 15", watercolour, 2000

This is the same Kim that's in Without List 2 (and she also appears in the very last painting of the Sunflowers series, CS (zulu)). To convey a floating feeling, I had her lie on the floor and, after arranging the lights (and her hair to be as flowy as possible), I stood on my coffee table and took the photo.


The placement of sunflowers didn't change from sketch to painting, and I like how the top flower serves as a halo –a true corona– (a recurring motif in this series).
