……………………..
One of my dear art collectors sent me a photo of the beautiful
Fjord from her trip to Norway.
Fjord, from the norse
“fjörðr”, in English means “where you travel across”. Also,
it has the same origin as the norwegian word “ferd”, English
“fare” or “travel”.  (Source: Wikipedia.no). 
Created my moving glaciers more
than 2.5 million years ago, Fjords 
are some
of the most dramatic landscape features on Earth. Just imaging how the glacier
was “slicing” the mountains, moving the rocks aside: and, how later
on the sea found its way there.
When I was
painting this piece I admired the monumental silence of the
mountains, calm water and a crisp air. And I hope I could bring my admiration into
my art.

  1. Hello Irina:) This is a masterpiece. The mountains, the reflection of them in the water, the depth, the water, it's all of a great beaty! Very, very nice!

  2. That's funny Kathryn you mentioned it as I lived close enough to Norway (in Russia), but the area I lived was gray as the mouse and flat as a cutting board (although it was very beautiful in Saint Petersburg). But I do call it “my previous life” as now I live in beautiful California, with hills, ocean, and gorgeous flowers.
    Thank you for your comment!

  3. That is somewhere I would love to visit one day – you have captured it beautifully in your painting. I live near to Snowdonia in Wales where the landscape is carved out from glaciers and everytime I walk there I marvel at how the landscape was formed
