Market women; 13×13cm, Oil on canvas, 2016, Astrid Volquardsen
During my last show I did a demo explaining my steps. This is the finished version.
In the painting you can see a hitosrically dressed market woman. In the suburbs of Hamburg at the river we have long tratidtion of vegatable cultivation. Those farmers used to bring their products with some certain type of ship along the river, right into Hamburg.
They did rebuild one of those ships and showed it on summer festive with open ships and a traditional flair to it. The crew went on selling flowers, apples and vegetables. Just like in the »good old days.«
You can by this small oil painting now. 180.- Euro with the frame. For terms of conditions please contact me.
