Watercolor “Sure, let´s just be friends”, 2019 by Anna Dart

"Sure, let´s just be friends" is a striking watercolour painting by Anna Dart that depicts a woman in a vulnerable state, lying on the floor in a state of undress, seemingly in response to a message of someone breaking up with her. The title of the painting reflects the modern-day reality of relationships that start and end quickly, and the difficulty of finding a true connection with someone in a world where access to potential partners is abundant through social media. It is a also commentary on the superficial and disposable nature of modern relationships, where it's easy to end things with a simple phrase and move on to the next person. The presence of the book in the painting serves as a symbol of the woman's preference for physical and tangible knowledge, as opposed to virtual and ephemeral connections. The book is also a representation of her intelligence and being well-read. Additionally, the woman is smoking which could be interpreted as a symbol of her being in control of the situation, despite the vulnerability that she is in.


The painting captures a moment of pain and vulnerability, but also of resilience and self-possession. The woman is not looking at the viewer, but her back is glowing, making her resemble a jewel on a velvet background. The combination of the velvet and the smoke from her cigarette creates a breathtaking sensual atmosphere. This iconic art would be a great addition to any art collection, particularly for those who appreciate the representation of strong, independent women and the complexity of human emotions. It would also make a great gift for Valentine's Day or any other personal event as it captures the essence of love and heartbreak.
