I often want to take a beautiful experience with me, and painting is the way to do it. My paintbox has joined me on many trips around my native Sweden as well as abroad.
I can't overemphasize the importance of field sketching – that's our workout and how we keep our minds fresh! I usually finish the painting at home, sometimes with a photo reference at hand and always trying to render the light and movement so that the viewer feels present on the scene. I want my paintings to be snapshots that tell a story and relate a mood.
