A trip to Byxelkrok in Öland where my grandmother (on my father's side) had a house by the sea. 2008 I decided to visit every atelier I could find, along with the mermaid book.
Marianne Forsberg made this colorful mermaid! I found her in her atelier "Humlan" (means bumblebee, check the corner!) She already had paintings, looking alot like this, a woman with the same pose, a bit african? With the "Blå jungfrun" (blue virgin) in the background. But this time it's just not a dress, it is also a tail!
