My childhood beach

Material: oil painting
Size: 240 cm x 100 cm cm

Our beaches along the coasts of Sweden. Are constantly threatened by storms that are changing our coastal landscape. This is a painting how I remember the beach in my childhood.
I am raised in Skälderviken just outside Ängelholm. It is here too, near the sea, beach and forest like me inspired and find my motives. When I paint, I often process the subject by highlight certain details. That's when I can give simple motifs an extra dimension through light and depth in my painting. My paintings are a mixture of naturalism and impressionism and are characterized usually of calm and harmony.
