She Always Painted Poppies

Oh, And Those Pretty Red Chickens.

This is the story of Gerrit. He is the oldest person of this project, he is 94. He was connected to Suzan, who is the youngest of the artists, she is 22 and just graduated from the art school in Utrecht, HKU. Gerrit tells her about his wife, whom he loved dearly. Despite his age, he is an avid Facebook user. He and Suzan become friends.
