When I worked with this character it reminded me of my mother in law. She was a warm and caring person. Sorry to say she died way to young only 66 years of age. She was not an artist but a lover and collector of art. That is why I portraited her as a painting artist. There was also another love of her life, nude swimming. In the town where she lived there was a special place by the sea called "Kärringhålan" hard to translate, but it was a place ladies came together for sunbaking and swimming and some talking and gossiping of course. My mother in law was there every day of the summer some times just for a short swim in the sea....I think this is the way I will remember her for ever.
