My violin, aquarelle

I play violin. I never learned reading sheet music. I play by ear but when it comes to Swedish folk’s music that is not such a unique thing. Many people playing folk’s music play by ear.

The violin is almost like a portrait. It has a very unique shape. If you miss it then it is no violin. Here I did my best. I tried to paint a violin several times but this version here is really good. For the strings I used silver pen. That is an odd feature of the painting. The silver ink has stood the time really well and is still glittery.

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.
