My little house in Brazil with combined outdoor kitchen and studio

This was the year he went to a little exotic village in Brazil, Trancoso, to stay and paint for 6 months. Rented his own little studio in the rainforest with a view over the ocean. Surrounded by banana trees, avocado trees, mango and yeah, all the rest.

After the first painting he said that it didn´t feel right to paint as he normally does in Sweden. So he had to re-think. He had to do what felt most right and what the place itself demanded, so he started to take photos of the beautiful original people of the village, and the painted hommages to the people. Simple, beautiful portraits acompaigned the flowers of the area.
