This painting is based on a reference photo of Marjo’s own horse Calypso.
“This view of Calypso is a very typical view, as elegant as he was when he was younger. This gives me a nostalgic feeling when I look at it.
It refers to the view you get when you come back at the pasture with your bucket with carrots. Your horse heard your car already and trots excited to the gate.
The green I used for the background is very rare and unique in my work. I’m used to make only two toned work with ultramarine blue and burned sienna, and that’s one of the reasons why this work is very special for me”
