This is the second of a series of paintings dedicated to the Folkbåt (people’s boat). I would love to own one but there is so much work each year maintaining it, I just don’t have the time or the passion for sanding and painting in the cold Swedish spring. I could buy a modern plastic one, they make them in Germany I believe but it’s not the same. It was better in the old days. Format: 69 x 24 cm.
The original reference photos and inspiration for my painting were taken by Finish photographer, Erik Lähteenmäki. You can visit his website here.
