The genuine painting

Generally we see too little art from the other Scandinavian countries, thus it is always exciting when there is an opportunity to encounter Scandinavian art. Based on the paintings that I have had the opportunity to see, it will be an interesting encounter. It is a matter of a genuine painting with the combination of landscape and the individual human being. It is not a photographic description but a suggestion. The sky is far above in these landscapes. The colours are varied but subtle. There is a sudden sense of loneliness, perhaps something melancholic in the universe of the painter.
