1942, Swedish Painting, 'Stockholm,' Eira Thelander

Bright, Swedish light in this crystal clear, blue skied, painting of Stockholm harbour.
Long heather shadows laze across a biscuit coloured dockside, two inky hulled fishing boats are moored, Ceramic hued masts pointing. Bottle green, orange and red flags slapping the breeze.
