This weather….it's just unbelievable . So warm and sunny and dry. It's more than Indian summer…it's just summer, never-ending.  Still uncomfortable to sleep with even a super thin down comforter….the kind that's called "sommer dyne" in norwegian.  The dog is feeling it too…..just doesn't want to go on long walks, and I can't seem to dress cool enough.
There have been hundreds of people on Lille Øvregt. this past weekend. Can't say that I blame them for not really having a visit to an art gallery at the top of their list of things to do, what with the hiking possibilities available in this city.  Nevertheless, very happy with those who did stop in, and for all the wonderful conversations and comments about the work hanging there now.  2 paintings sold this weekend lifted me out of the doldrums, and many more who were seriously interested in several others will be coming back to me before I close up the 28th.
Go to an art exhibit in your neighborhood soon.  The more you see, the better you will become at knowing what is good and what isn't.  Contemporary art, old school art, realism, expressionism, impressionism, surrealism, the list goes on….just go and look and make up your own mind. Don't be intimidated. So much fun stuff to experience.
