my art table at the moment. i might create my next character tomorrow which is based upon my grandma:) it depends on the weather (NO RAIN PLEEEEASE)!!! her name was vera andersson and she was a farmers wife loving her cows, chickens (all 50 of them), horse & cat. a wonderful, bondmora as we call it in sweden. it is our saga.
me trying out my bondmora outfit:)
"vårt liv är en vindfläkt,
en saga, en dröm
en droppe som faller
i tidernas ström
den skimrar i regnbågens färg
brister och faller
och drömmen är slut"
i am playing with the idea of creating a classic portrait, the way they did back in late 1800's. or at least the way i have it in my mind they used to do it. there is no images of my grandma from her being a young farmer's wife which was in the 40's & 50's, not even from the 60's. back then to have ones photo taken, you were part of the upper class i am assuming!?. the only photo i know of her being young is the wedding photo to my granddad.
i hope to bring her love in this story.
