Orange, You Glad It´s Friday




This orange dress was made for me by a haute couture student many years ago, but on Sunday I wore it for the first time... My son gave me a compliment... wondering why it has been hanging in the closet for so long time...

Morning Glory came at last!




This is my tribute to Floral Friday,  Blomstrende fredag, Today´s Flowers and Saturday Show Off! - the last flower in my garden to bloom for the first time this year!



 Strawberry

And the rose family is still surprising me by having new flowers.

Litt ironisk, ganglionen jeg hadde på det venstre håndleddet for ett og et halvt år sida, kom tilbake denne torsdagen. Maleriet på høstutstillingen ga tankene fritt spillerom: Kanskje jeg får bruke en gammeldags metode for å bli kvitt den!

One method for a ganglion cyst is to strike the lump with a large heavy book, causing the cyst to rupture and drain into the surrounding tissues. Historically, a Bible was the largest or only book in any given household and was commonly used; this led to the nickname of "Bible bumps" or "Gideon's disease."

Fotorealisme på Høstutstillingen. Denne teknikken viser en utrolig prestasjon og godt håndverk, men hva er den godt for - spør jeg, og det er jo som å banne i kjerka! Kan like godt ta et foto!




Så kunstverket til Monica, en nydelig kopi av farens MG i marsipan, en gave til han på 70 årsdagen.
Deretter en ekte vare jeg passerte her om dagen. 
Jeg har ikke bildilla. For meg er det kun et framkomstmiddel, men dette kan vel kalles kunst, en ready made - muligens?

Og et lite apropos: Disse var å se på Østlandsutstillingen på Galleri ØKS!

Fra Høstutstillingen
Dette kunstverket ga assosiasjoner til en eksamensbesvarelse en av mine elever leverte i Visuelle kunstfag i mai... fantastisk hva!
The Salong
This piece reminded me of the respond one of my students handed in Visual Arts for the examination last May ... amazing!

From the present Salong in Oslo- this artwork has some similar style and characteristics with my sketches of the old woman for the graphic underneath. I must try to find the pencil   versions, but meanwhile the lino print illustration will give a vision of a kind.




Av Inger Hagerup
Mars 1941.



De brente våre gårder.
De drepte våre menn.
La vare hjerter hamre 
det om og om igjen.


La våre hjerter hugge
med harde, vonde slag:
De brente våre gårder. 
De gjorde det i dag.



De brente våre gårder.
De drepte våre menn.
Bak hver som gikk i døden, 
står tusener igjen. 



Står tusen andre samlet
i steil og naken tross 
Å, døde kamerater,
de kuer aldri oss.

Macro; On Thursday 2




Information about the artist will come!




The first photo shows an artwork from the present Salong in Oslo this Autumn, the second is of a piece drawn by my son when he was seventeen. I felt immediately some associations between them.

Høstutstllingen; Bønner til Allah


Facebook had overtatt arenaen for kjedebrev. Er det noe jeg har lite til overs for, er det kjedebrev med skjulte trusler. Dette kom for noen dager siden: 

This is for u:) Read till the end! I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back and asked "why?" The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels!" twenty angels are in your world. Ten are sleeping, nine of them are playing and one is reading this message. God has seen you struggling with some things and God says it over. a blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message to 14 friends including me, if I don't get it back I guess I'm not one of them. As soon as you get 5 replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you... Not joking. Pass this message on. Please don't ignore it. you are being tested and God is going to fix two big things tonight in your favor. If you believe in God drop everything and pass it on TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. DON'T BREAK THIS. SEND THIS TO 14 FRIENDS IN 10 MINUTES IT'S NOT THAT HARD. WHOEVER SENT THIS TO YOU MUST CARE ABOUT YOU dont know how to send it ' LOL just hold your finger on it n it should say forward

Sjølsagt er det velmenende, men det helliger ikke midlet. Derfor svarte jeg:

Thanks Mio, but whoever God might be, my faith does not depend on what I do in this case.
Have a nice and lovely day, hugs 




Jeg er en fritenker og tillater meg å se gudsbildet ut fra eget perspektiv, så derfor tok jeg initiativ til å delta i det interaktivet kunstverket Bønner til Allah: 





Litt humor i en ellers alvorlig kontekst er heller ikke å forakte, så en elev strev: 
Kjære Allah
Jeg ønsker meg så inderlig en liten, blå ponni! 
En symbolverdi av de store... og en tankevekker.

Flowering in the Sculpture Park of Vigeland.




we had an excursion to Oslo with the students to see The Salong and The Statue Park of Vigeland.


Look closer...

Some of the artwork from the exhibition reminded me of work done by students, my son and myself -  back in time. Strange to discover! This I will offer a presentation each.

The roses in the park were gorgeous, but my lovely Louise Odier is also charming with all the drops like a broidery!
