This painting was done a few weeks ago at the open-air museum of Skansen, a collection of structures from Hälsingland. Robert Duncan was working on the same viewpoint next to me.  We set up in the shade of the flat bread bakery house and got to know the people working there as the crowds walked in and out. 

After looking at mine for a while, I figured it needed a figure to give it more attention.  So I used one of our models / relative to add the right flavor.  She has a piece of flat bread in her hand, which of course attracted all the chickens.  Now her true location was actually about a hundred kilometers north at her home.  I just used an image of her to put in the painting.
