My talented sister. My sister Laura Mendelin (one of her photos above) is nominated for a photo prize in Sweden, Årets bild. She is really worth the nomination, this girl can take a picture of a windsurfer when there is absoulutely no wind. You can see more of her photos on her blog. If you are one of the people who know me and have an interest in nostalgia, check out the photo from my 12th birthday.

Take 1. Too realistic, too much green for my taste. I still like the stems of the pine trees, they look just the way they did in my childhood forests.
Take 2. Oops, here I tilted maybe too far from the realism. It looks cold and cactuslike. But I like the simplicity (+ this was easy to paint).
Take 3. I think this is getting close to what I want. I went out and took photos of under vegetation, and found the right colors and light from there. I would never have thought about using lilac, but when I saw it in the photo and tried it it was perfect. Here, a small portion of the photo as well.
