    The fact that your work is so ‘different’ is what makes it extremely appealing to me. ;-)

    This actually reminds me a bit of Rembrandt!

  • My paintings are not so different, only scandinavian I think. My picture her shows how “naked” watercolor can be, you can see all the strokes down to the paper …

    stunning work!! Your work is very unique & original

  • Thank you for nice comment, James! I had an old black and white photo of my grandma, and tried to paint a picture of her as I remembered her. She was a special lady.
