For my sister

My sister got married on Saturday, September 1.There was a great party with many great speeches. I’m not claiming greatness on my own, but I will post it here (translated to English for my foreign friends) for everybody else to enjoy (for the first time, or again if you were there).I said it many times that day, but I’ll say it here again.

This code is run whenever the CKEditor generates the […] Read more

Art history lesson

Today my nephew got baptized. Let’s not dwell on that and look at what I got him instead.A few days ago I actually went into an art gallery and bought a piece of art. There’s certainly a first time for everything! I hope the little guy will appreciate a genuine piece of art as he grows older. What I got him was this lithograph from artist Per Krohg, son of the renowned Christian Krohg. Per originally made a series of pictures for his son Guy when he was a child. Each picture represented a letter in the alphabet. The family of artists were typical of their time and lived in France, so each picture also represented something in French.Unfortunately the gallery didn’t have the letter […] Read more
