When I started to work on this painting, I had decided to make a totaly non figurative piece of art. As it developed, I suddenly saw the lama, and I came to think of the old mountain farm in Geiranger. It’s actually the place where my mothers father’s family came from, its’s now abandoned, but still in use for holidaymakers. The owners keep some lamas and other animals there for the amusement of tourists and families with children.

Even if it did not turn out exactly as I thought,  it rarely does, I’m happy with the result anyway. It reminds me of how difficult it is to make non figurative art, even if you try, it is so easy to get distracted by poping up figures!

  1. I love the boldness of the colors and the llama is a quirky personality, I think, that you created with just a few strokes. Love it.
