Fountain, Stockholm

Painting Description

This aesthetically-pleasing and spirit-boosting sculpture is found in the middle of Stockholm. This piece is traditional and contrasts with the contemporary sculpture in Millesgarten which depicts God’s fifty-foot-high hand holding a man. The most modern interpretation shows in the sculpture that stands by the Stockholm harbour. There someone has painted brown spots on leggy, ship-loading cranes to create giant giraffes that oversee the harbour. I have painted examples of all three types of sculpture and many more in various countries. I am strangely drawn to statuary. After my first year in art college, I considered majoring in sculpture but decided instead to pursue painting. Maybe that explains my many paintings of monuments, and, of course, statues don’’t move which make them easy to paint.
