My Crafty Family : a painting by my mother

My mother painted this gorgeous norwegian view, she is
a really accomplished painter and has tried out all kinds
of techniques and mediums. This particular painting she
made with oil-paints. The funny thing is, that last
tuesday, when we were driving to the village of
Byrkjedal, we saw a view in real life that was so similar
to this painting, that it was uncanny. All three of us
thought of that at the same time when the sight came
into view.

And as icing on the cake my father made this frame
to really finish it off. The relief of the frame and the
paint colour complement the painting. How is
that for a crafty family !

What a wonderful artistic family you have! That must be a real treat to have so much inspiration all around you. Your mother is very talented and I love that your father framed it. What a gorgeous view!
