Well, our third midwinter trip to Norway exceeded even MY expectations--it was cold, it was snowy, it was stormy (I loved it!), we saw the northern lights, we loved our cabin in the little fishing village above the Arctic Circle, we ate fish three times a day, we ... and on it went.
Because I had a week to make Christmas happen after our return from Norway, I'm late sharing these and I'm going to do it lightning quick.
View from our moving boat. It was so dark that morning and I was working so fast, I could hardly see ( or take the time to look at) my art supplies! I just reached down, grabbed a crayon and drew.
My husband and I were stunned when we rounded a corner in Bergen and saw this spectacular wooden sculpture of a fish, the King Cod. We didn't remember it from our last trip. We were sure it was part of a ship's prow from time long past. No, it is a recent sculpture by an Italian artist!
Another glimpse of the constantly moving scenes before us as we sailed up to the Arctic Circle and beyond:
Here was a jolly fellow we kept seeing on board ship. He was always accompanied by a glass of beer. He had quite a belly laugh, but then he had quite the belly to work with!
As I mentioned earlier, the scenery was in constant motion during the first part of our trip. This happens on a ship ;D. I made a page of thumbnails to record, just barely, some shapes and textures I saw.
I have more to share, of course. I want also to do my annual end of year post. It's been quite a year! See you after Christmas! God yul, y'all!
