Exhibition at the Country Market in Hvolsvoll

View from Eidi at Vestmannaeyjar

The exhibition starts at 1. May, Labour Day.
I am working like made to have everything finished in time.  Finished painting the last painting of their local Church and one small one of kids running in autumn colors, it came as an after thought, quite nice if I my say so myself.  I will be showing about 27 small and larger paintings.
The painting above got sold this morning but I may enter it in the show, I am really happy with this one as these are the colors we see so often here in Vestmannaeyjar in the evenings.  It is in a three window carton, glass and frame, very attractive finish, don´t you think?  I took the photo after it had been framed so one can see the reflection in the glass, sorry about that.
I will enter some more photos later.

Here are some of my small paintings that will be on the show.

There had to be some animals in this country show.

Easter Tulips

Spring is here!
I hardly ever paint flowers but when I bought this lovely bouncy of Tulips to decorate my lounge room for Easter I just had to give it a try.
I obviously did not give myself time to plan it right,  as you can see the flowers are lacking space, and
I should have made the vase smaller to allow more room for the Tulips themselves or placed the vase further away from me, I had it right beside me on the table while I painted them.
Well, one keeps learning.
