             I wanted to paint these cans in a very lively manner. If you look at the rather small
             images of my watercolours, then they may seem to be photorealistic, but they are not.
             In fact, they are painted in a rather rough manner, as the details of "Bull nagging" show.
             Seen from a close distance, the watercolours appear to be rather messy, but already from some
             modest distance, our brains do the work and fill all the necessary details to make it realistic.

             The cans are metaphores for what life does with humans. We start as young persons and youth
             is generally considered as beautiful and most of us try to maintain a glimpse of youth as
             we get older. But aging may also lead to characterful individuals, which is also beautiful,
             or interesting if you wish. We do not need complicated surgery to look like an ideal, instead we
             can view aging as a process that can show experience, character, and individuality.
