Trudging Forward

Trudging forward through life. I guess that's what we need to do when it gets hard. Now that the second large wave of covid-19 seem to have reached Europe we're about to go through another period of social restrictions. In Norway we've been lucky, and prevented a large outbreak back in February. That helped the…

Being Outside

Being outside is the best recreation! (besides painting and drawing, of course) I get so much energy and serenity being among green grass, rustling trees and the sound of the birds singing and chirping. And when we bring with us the cooker for some simple food and coffee, the day is complete. I imagine these…

On the Peak

To break up the series of digital paintings I've been caught up in lately, I decided to have a go at a marker drawing again. There's not much new here, with main elements like mountains, cabins, fence posts and people. All of my favourites, summed up 🙂 Anyway, I hope you like the drawing, and…

I just couldn't get the song "Hunting high and low" from a-ha out of my head while drawing this one. It has nothing in common with the song, other than that the cabins are physically high and low. Or maybe there's a dramatic love story going on within the cabins, or a search for each…

A Northern Night

I've seen the Northern lights - or aurora borealis - a few times. But not nearly enough. It's quite common where I live now, but it's often outshined by the lights of the city. If you want to see it more clearly you need to go to a darker place, og maybe further up north.…

The Tugboat

I really like the look of tugboats! They just look so robust, and ready to do the work. Always with a few scratches, or some stains of fuel. But you just get the feeling that they can go on forever, until they physically fall apart. Something to rely on, from the good old days. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4PPTDLp2kg
