This is one of my first Viking paintings. The Swedish sun glasses are based on the ones you see in the photo. It's hard to see, but Ben (shown below) is wearing glasses that have a Swedish flag design on the lens. I intentionally gave the painting a Big Lebowski look. It is interesting for me to see this piece now, because I did it about 4 months ago. I look at it today, with different eyes. I would not paint is like this today. It makes me wonder how my work will evolve in another 4 months. Or another four years for that matter.
