Bergen has rain galore and it was a bit chilly when the snow arrived but this did not deter the fun of catching up with old friends and their partners. We began the trip with a rainbow and ended on slippery ice but that’s life…. It was basically a reunion of Johnny McGuinness, Geir Jordahl and myself as we had all met in June 1982 at the summer school of Oslo University. Fast forward to 2017 and we are all looking like dark, perverted Santa Claus characters. Fairly fitting for this time of the year I guess. Besides looking at Edvard Munch works, we drank akvavit and whiskey and contemplated the many things that have happened to each of us over the past 35 years and what may happen next.
It is soon time to pack up my studio at the excellent NKD art residency in Norway, which I must say is one of the best run, most comfortable, and most scenic art residency programs I have attended. Tusen Takk or one thousand thanks to the team at NKD
Sadly my January European plans in Ireland and Spain have to be aborted as it is necessary for me to return to the southern hemisphere. It is certainly time to see Carolina so time to somehow fly southwards to the warmth of summer.
