Artist's description:

Ragnar Lothbrok from Vikings is a hero of mine and constantly at war, both physically and personally. Krig represents my own battles with life. I lived in Northern Norway as a younger man and it was the first place i studied art. I switched from art to drama half way through my time in Norway. I never regret this, but this also represents my own struggles and never knowing which direction was the right direction for me?

The intensity of this warriors eyes as he looks for a way forward? A direction to take? He is focused on one direction only.

I painted Krig whilst visiting my sister in Winnipeg, Canada this year. Sat at a rustic table in her kitchen, watching constant news, he slowly came to life before me. I started with his eyes and built from that point. I loved him or wanted to be him, from the moment I could see his strength and power. I became scared of Krig as I did not want to lose his beauty, his intensity or the battle in his expression. Painting him became a krig. Parting with him will be another krig, but like Ragnar, I must try and move on.....
