My grandfather’s school photo- it haunts me…

I am obsessed with this photo of my grandfather’s school class (Hudiksvall, Sweden).  He is in the top left.  I have drawn it over and over and painted it.  But something never allows me to finish.  I get as far as some of the girls, then the rest refuse a portrait.  I will try again sometime.  See what happens.  What are the students trying to tell me?

  • oh, I was looking at this when I was last visiting! I love the painting…

    so strange how striking old school photos can be…this one, especially. lost souls, almost.
