Row of houses, Stuguskär

husrad_stuguskar

Everything on Norrbyskär is ordered in neat rows, the streets (not that there are many…) are straight as rulers, the houses are all in line, everything in this community was planned and laid out perfectly a few years before 1900, to keep everything organized at the saw mill. If you got a job at the saw mill, you lived your life in these company houses, spent your spare time in the many music-, sports- and church clubs on the island, and you didn´t misbehave, because everybody knew everything about everybody.

This is the image I used for my vernissage invitation card.

19,5 x 20 cm, watercolours on Fabriano Artistico 300 gsm rough grain watercolour paper.
