This painting was made during the early and formative years of my career as an artist when I was creating my own style and voice. It is a study for a future painting. It is an based on the work by Larsson. Although it is an interpretation, I have made some changes to the composition and details in an effort to bring my voice into the image. The changes made are to the dress, flowers, table, window and pattern on the wall. Therefore it is not a direct reproduction. It represents a domestic scene in a Scandinavian home. The mother is looking after her flowers. She is followed by her little boy who helps her. This is a window into the importance of family life and nurturing of children during their early years in Scandinavia. A beautiful image to decorate a bedroom or kitchen.
