Malene's Children

This piece was a long and beautiful journey together with my friend Malene. We had loads of talks about which elements to include.

The kids are playing in a sandbox in the garden, late summer, blowing soap bubbles and enjoying the last beams of the sun. I have chosen to combine an expressive way of painting the flowers and a more naturalistic, but not quite, of painting the children. The painting is 100 cm x 80 cm acrylic and mother of pearl on canvas.
