Carl Larsson prints.

Beautiful sunny day here up North. Went for a long drive into the country with my friend, Susan. We stumbled upon some wonderful prints by Carl Larsson. One is of a barnyard, it is called "The Gate" and another is of a studio. I fell in love and bought them. Each one cost me $1. Yippie! I wanted to share them with you. I am going to go fish around on line and find out more about this artist. My friend knew exactly who it was before I even read the description! Maybe you all know who he is? I thought these watercolor illustrations were so beautiful, soft and detailed. There is even a station of the cross on the top of the studio wall print! My camera didn't take a very clear picture of these. Rats!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.


  1. I'd like to live IN the paintings Carl Larsson painted. All those wonderful colors and great light. Not to mention sisters! But I don't think he painted many winter scenes, so I might have a skewed idea of what it was like then. Did you ever read The Golden Name Day as a kid?
    Unforgettable and similar atmosphere!

  2. no I have not read this book. I will look on line for it. I would love to live in his painting too! Except, I would want INSIDE plumbing. :O
