It may not look like much, but this is nearly a day's work...That's why I think it's helpful to think in terms of weeks instead of days as far as artistic productivity is concerned!
Our bikes are both around 30 years old...Sarah bought hers second hand, and mine came over from California when they originally moved to this country. It's a lot harder work for us than anyone with a new bike, but at least we keep pace with each other!
Some of the work I completed over easter. Mostly book pages, but some pretty stuff too!
The first evening we arrived in Bergen. Beautiful skies which assured my parents Norway wasn't storming ALL the time.
(The above blank space is supposed to read "Alison Hallett" but in my half awake state I had no hope of remembering her name).
A migrating stone which I found, frozen into a small river that had formed on the mountain road. It will stay there 'till the ice thaws and then be deposited somewhere...
View from the top of a lift at Strandafjellet Ski Centre. It was a little icy the first day but so clear, and we were one of the few people out on a Friday.
The girl who was lodging in my place (An Erasmus exchange student to England) had never been to the beach here, so we took a day trip to Weston Super Mare. I was totally fascinated by the frozen sea foam.
This drawing was inspired by our trip to the Island of Runde. Track back to the end of entry 7 for some photos!
The row of rocks in the background provides a sort of wave shelter for paddling out. Just about the only way I paddle out past anything to be honest.
The South Downs, with the sea on the horizon.
I guess Bath is a pretty amazing city, in that it manages to hold so many people and tourists, but there are still a hundred peaceful places where you can feel in the middle of nowhere important.

Being shown how it's done by the expert. Making style look easy...
Taking a rest stop in the snow when you really can't figure out how to stand up isn't so bad with a view like this!
In my last week, I ticked watching the sun rise from my list. I sure am going to miss being able to get up and go climb a mountain for purposes such as these!
It may be raining and almost dark all day at sea level, but up a couple hundred meters it's snowing, and so much brighter since the white reflects what little light there is.
Volda is the grey area at the bottom of this map, and there's a nice road that leads up to the bases of Vardehornet and Melsehornet, great for dog walks and spontanious mountain escapes.
Up near Melsehornet. Beautifully frosty. Lana was having great fun seeing if she could break trough the ice with her head. As you do.
Here's a teaser for something I hope to share with you soon! I haven't been doing much adventerous lately with all these exams and the fabulous November weather, but it should give me lots of time to work on adventerous projects once exams are done!
Yes, he's unicycling in the woods. How else would someone spend a saturday afternoon?
My mum, being the creative she is, made a little TinTin themed poster haha. Thought I'd post it here considering it was related to how I was saying about the burrito thing a couple of posts ago...
To break up all the handwriting...I never posted a picture of my Volda hat! I made mittens too with some reaaally lovely red alpaca wool I bought in Oslo.
New Journal! I thought a map of Sunnmøre would make a very appropriate cover.
We saw lots of nice art in both Poland and Oslo (Including the panorama in Wroclaw and national gallery Oslo, which currently has a reaally nice woodcut exhibition on), which I am representing here with this Oslo statue of some mythical chickens.
Little bit of watercolour to finish with. Inspired by the view from climbing Haugabreen glacier.
