Inspired by the Great Norwegian Painter Peder Balke with the touch of the techniques from the great English Painter J.M.W. Turner.

      • Pleasure to meet you Paulus. I’m loving your blog. You also have an interesting array of knowledge, skills and interests – feels and looks like you are living the dream that some of us have – more than one lifetime in one lifetime ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thank you for the kind words. I do not know if I am greedy or not. I am not really satisfied with myself. I was constantly being suppressed by the locals for the pursuit for arts or literature. It wasn’t until a few years ago I was brave enough to try to engage in this “science”. I always felt like I wasted my childhood and also I am not as experienced and systematically trained than other artists. Nor do I know enough about the arts industry, especially how it operates. Enough for my self absorbed mourning. I am looking forward to your next post soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Well, I might just be inspired to write something from this conversation. From what you say – you have not allowed your suppression to hold you back, I see an adventurer – not greedy but hungry to embrace this great universe even with its flaws:-) Maybe if you like – you could do your own interpretation of the brush stroke you would add to go with the poem I wrote. I would do it myself if I could paint. ๐Ÿ™‚ Best. Chevvy

    • I believe during the winter in the arctic circle, there are times when the sun hangs so low and daylight very short, which with all the clouds will create such strange scenery. (Of course there are times when the sun is gone for the whole day) Yet what I was trying to do was the idea of during the primeval time of the earth when lights and darkness mingled. I also drew ideas from the Disney Old Fantasia, in which there was a cartoon about the birth of earth featuring Rite of Spring of Stravinsky(I think,not so sure). Yet arts is up to reader’s interpretations, so your impression is right too.

    • Thank you very much. You produce good works. And I appreciate them.
      I am using a software called Artrage. It can mimic oil paints. I didn’t realise the similarity until I really started on oil painting recently.
