Protected: The Mess I Made Before NIL-17

27.04.17: Disaster behind the scenes, – but you are invited! Hi! Sometimes I’m not at my best, and sometimes I really make a mess of it. This Saturday, a big event (at least for art lovers) in Nittedal is opening. It’s the opening of the Spring Exhibition in Nittedal 2017, where work from more than 100 artists are displayed, and sold. Different from the normal exhibition, here, the works are sold straight from the wall, and the walls are are constantly filled with new works. It’s a party and it’s a real goodie for art lovers and artists alike. I was so lucky to be one of the artists invited to exhibit at the Spring Exhibition (Vårutstillingen i Nittedal).

Blue Night

Ta-ta-daa! The winner of naming this painting is @beatetret.
