What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Bold Strokes


Belgian painter Vera Kover’s still life paintings are anything but still. Her technique of bold strokes, palette knife smears, and scratches brings them to life in a fascinating way. They border on the abstract, but it’s nonetheless always clear what her subjects are.

“To paint without rules, to paint how you feel. I love to experiment with different combinations of colors. Bright colors giving me freedom. Painting on border of reality and abstraction showing in one time my feelings and inspiration.”

I love that she’s able to take something as predictable as flowers and turn them into something dynamic and modern. I wish I could see the world like that!

You can follow the talented Vera Kober on her website and also on Instagram and Twitter.
