Less than 10 days ago....


















Less than 10 days ago,
when the sun was out and the sky was BLUE.

Skur2
















Yesterday I visited Skur2, where Sunderø Gallery have an art exhibition with four artist showing contemporary artwork / pencil drawings.

This "Newborn Gray Whale" by the artist Solveig Bergene was already bought by a private collector.
(Probably a person with lots of space at home.)

The work measures 220 x 450 cm.

If you have a chance to go there, take a good look at the whale's EYE.

Two happy sisters.





















Two happy sisters on their way to the cinema to watch the film "Elias".
I asked their parents for permission to take and publish the photo.

They looked so smart with their very feminine outfits!

It seems to be a popular thing to do on Sundays .... go to the cinema, I mean.

IVAR SKEI music shop














The unique and the BEST music shop I know about in all of Norway are closing their doors today!
After more than 100 years in business in Sandnes.

Nobody I know can match their knowledge in music, whatever field! Always service minded too.
Liv Reidun has been working there for 40 years and has created a cultural institution for a huge number of people, and she has also sold music at many festivals and concerts over the years.

Now times have changed, and many people buy music via the internet.

I feel sad when quality shops disappear, and in particular this one!

Today there was live music & a concert in the shop .... lots of grateful people, lots of flowers and lots of hugs!

Thank you Liv Reidun Gramstad! (Seen as number 3 from the left in todays photo.)

Johanna and her little brother.





















This is Johanna and her little brother.
The bronze statue is made by Svein Magnus Håvarstein.
It has been one of my favourites for many years.
It was given to the city, by Stavanger Aftenblad, our biggest local newspaper back in 1993.
"Johanna og Broremann" and the story by Ajax is well known for families from our area.

I also like the NUART version on the mural /wall by Ernest Zacharevic.

Cancer research.





















WELL DONE to all the farmers who are supporting cancer research.

Last year with PINK plastic out on the fields ... breast cancer.
This year there are BLUE ones too. Awareness and research on prostate cancer.

Some of the money they pay for the plastic goes straight to the research!

Again, WELL DONE!
