This was a commission work. Kumiko’s friend asked her to paint of the courtyard of the house in Holland Park where the friend lived before she left.
This friend loved sitting there and just loooking at the courtyard every day at home, so she wanted to keep a memory of it as a painting.
The photo here was used by Kumiko as a model for this painting, ‘The Courtyard ( Holland Park )’.
