Norse forest spirit

Wednesday 31.August 2016

I just finished this painting of huldra today. (Huldra is a seductive forest spirit from Norse mythology.)
I don’t tend to paint  a lot of nature, but naturally one does make exceptions for special regular customers.
This is one of those commissions where I was given complete freedom, the only thing that was set was the size of the canvas and where it was going to hang.
This painting is oil on canvas, it’s 60 x 100 cm, and the title is simply “Huldra” (which unfortunately doesn’t translate). In the not too distant future she will be leaving my art studio to move in at the cabin of her new owners.
If you would like to see this in a larger format you can find it in the Commission-gallery
