IF; Phenomenon

.



This week's topic is "Phenomenon" suggested by studio lolo ().
"Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance,
but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances
of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself."


 ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Last August there was a northern light shining over my town. This is a rarely phenomenon in this area.
Normally the light appears in the northern part of Norway. I live in the south. My light in watercolour is a fantasy light since I missed the chance to experience the light myself this very summer night.
Click on my painting and see more  variations and beautiful lights on the northern nightsky.
Do you wonder how I made the reflections? The paper was still wet when I took the photo, simply!

  1. Hello! I like your entry too, as I expect several rather abstract entries this week. I've never had the pleasure of actually seeing the northern lights, but would love to some day. The link you provide is wonderful!

  5. Hei der,
    Din farger på dette er fantastiske! Og Goethe sitatet er perfekt. Og jeg bare utforsket bloggen din videre-Jeg elsker at du er en vanlig besøkende til bloggen min! Hvor er min norsk? Ha ha-jeg bruker "Google Translate" å lese oppføringer som ikke er IF. Jeg håper du føler deg bedre etter at din reise til Arles, som ser ut som en fantastisk eventyr. Turen via malerier og bilder av Van Gogh liv i Arles er fascinerende. Gir meg lyst til å besøke.

    Happy søndag!

  8. What a great take on the theme! I was thinking about what I could do with it, and then you´ve got the perfect solution! It looks great, and watercolor is definitely the right media for this phenomenon!
