Mr. and Mrs Johansson had no doubt that they had a most beautiful view from their living room. As they are about to give up this house and go live elsewhere, they certainly did not want to leave this view behind. So, they commissioned me to bring it to their new home, streched out on a piece of canvas, 40 x 120. You don't notice it on the computer screne, however this painting is comfortably a large size. It took some crafty manoeuvres to bring about a sense of depth in this painting, and getting those pretty horses in the right perspective was challenging, however I believe I did ok. I'm including a detail of the view, in this posting.
