This soft pastels work has been made on the lakeside during summer 2019 and it took a few days in the outdoors to finish. Every morning I settled into the lakeshore, had a short meditation session and set to work. “Cloud” depicts a giant cloud that has settled over the pink lake and islands, like it was a living, breathing thing. You can think that the drawing contains several layers and meanings beside the depiction of physical surroundings. This is the first work about clouds that I did and set in motion a series of “Blue sky” paintings I started to work on later in 2020.

“Cloud” — Soft pastels on paper, 63 x 34,5 cm, 2019.
