And it is just Mike!!!
your works are the proove that an historical piece can be dramatic, balanced, expressive and dynamic.
Yes indeed my dear friend. Dramatic art is how you approach and create a scene or a single figure. I never really cared if it is fantasy, historical or a civilian. Great art is great art, regardless!
I love to see a creation that moves me, that create an emotion and a bond with the viewer. Th subject is secondary. Thanks for all your support and inspiration!
Tackar Mr Super Swede!!!
The power of your vision.. I’m so fashinated. I read your book, everyone should read it, and I keep it always ready to read it again.

At long last.Someone who can paint tartan as it would have been in the highlands at this time.GOLD
And you should know, being a Scot yourself! Yes, these are no the late Victorian romantic version of the Clansman and the their tartan…
The starved, tired and outnumbered army in rags under “Bonnie” was something else. I have always found this battle very interesting to study, the background, the participants and the inevitable outcome…
Thanks my friend!
