In the words of the artist: "the germinating plant is central, with the roots in brown-green earth tones. In the warm yellow the stem grows with first leaves, reaching for the sky in blue-pink hues. Germination fits in nicely with the spring season. The beginning of spring and the start of a new cycle of nature appeals to the imagination. After the cold and dark months, we are all ready for a new beginning, light and warmth."
Geertje Kapteijns (1980) is a visual artist, living in Dordrecht, Netherlands. When her children went to a Waldorf school, she was introduced to the way in which the seasons and annual festivals are celebrated and how children are able to be children during childhood. This has proved to be a huge source of inspiration. She started making chalkboard drawings and over time, she released them as cards, as well as her watercolour paintings as cards. The cards are small works of art that encourage a conscious reflection on a certain time of the year or a certain event and the feeling that goes with that. Drawings that make you look forward to remembering a beautiful moment.
