Ragnar Lothbrok has for me, been one of the ultimate characters created on TV and Film in the last decade. I have lived in Scandinavia and I speak Norwegian. I have experienced the Northern lights and spent time with the Sami people of the North. I have total respect for the Culture of that part of the world.
I am became addicted to the series Vikings whilst living in Brazil in 2014-2015. Ragnar became my idol and ultimate warrior.
Ragnars Tears represents some of my own heartache through the eyes of my hero. Ragnar for me has a soul. To paint him representing my own pain, was a very personal journey, but also something that helped in my recovery. His tears are real but they are shown to the world in a moment of showing his real feelings.
Ragnar was painted in Winnipeg, Canada in the spring of 2018, whilst visiting my sister.
