Oil on Belgian Linen Unframed
Approx 16 x 23.5 inches

Runes: My inspiration for this piece was drawn heavily from the Swedish landscape I live in. I drew inspiration not only from my model, who is a Swedish photographer, but also from traditions such as Santa Lucia, Alla Helgons Dag and also actual rune stones I have visited. Ancient Swedish culture can be depicted as quite dark, almost melancholic. I wanted to bring some of those threads into this piece and create something eerily magical.
