I painted this in 2004. I remember it took me a whole week to complete. It was mid summer and very hot, I had the window open in my small student room I was living in at the time. I did not have any good drapes though so sometimes when the sun shined strong it was hard to make out the details. I was painting sitting close to the canvas with a very small brush to get all the detail right. It is from a photo that my brother had taken an early morning on his way to the train station in Uppsala, with his brand new 5 GPix Canon camera. The water was all still, just like in the painting. It is now owned by my sister, who bought it when she moved to Norway.
