||Portrait of Marta Spring 2011
Marta on a tree trunk
This model had a long dark braid and somehow I associated her with an Indian girl but that was not correct. There you have it anyway, my association, although wrong. She was sitting on a sofa in the gallery but I did not paint so much of the sofa but I concentrated on the model instead.
I had problems with the proportions of the legs and arms as usual and her face where not at all like the model. But the face had something nice to it so I had to be happy with the result anyway.
In a late stage a colleague at the gallery associated my unfinished sofa with a tree trunk. There you have it, Judits association, although wrong. I started to think about this idea that if the model were sitting on a tree trunk then what was she doing with her leg? Dipping it in water obviously!
I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.
Here on this site I let you see my creations.
I create, that is my hobby.
