When I started this painting in early November 2006, I didn’t expect it to end up the way it did. In the beginning the motive was something completely different, but as I was working with it and listening to the first part of Jean Sibelius ”Finlandia” it became clearer what I wanted to do.
My family along with thousands of Finns came to Sweden from Finland after the second world war, leaving a country that in those days had a large problem feeding its population. My mum lost her first husband in the winter war. My dad survived both wars against the Russians. Their personal loses did not leave them unscarred and of course this reflected on our upbringing. I remember when I was a child during the 50:es that the subject of the war often came up for discussion when my parents friends came to visit and I have later in life come to realise that many of the men, quite often needed the help from the bottle to forget.
This painting is about them
