And to Adam he said,
Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; Genesis 2.

The Painting:
Left we see the annoyed spoiled girl and daddy who initially wants to chat with his daughter, but is distracted by the early fruit in the tree in front of the house. Nevertheless, deep inside he did not feel the urge for a good conversation anyway because he is already wasted.

The cat looks astonished to the viewer. He nor likes change nor newcomers. He is quite satisfied this way, in late spring in the garden. Right: In the decadent painting above the dresser, exuberance dominates. Two clocks tick the years away and give shape to mortality. The colorless parrot culture hides behind the time spirit.

The dimensions of the whole painting (200 x 320 cm) correspond to the Phi ratio, also golden section or Guilder cut. In de composition the Phi ratio spiral is embedded.
