Oil on canvas

My first, yet uncompleted oil painting, as backdrop to a planned self portrait. I did not feel competent enough then, and solved the problem by reducing my size; if you look closely, there is a small figure sitting close to the centre of the picture, that's me! Based on an old etching I saw in a British tourist magazine IN BRITAIN in the early 1960s : «Sir Lancelot (?) coming to Camelot» I was infatuated with old british culture…

This I recon to be my first completed oil painting, done when we lived at Åsgård, and showing a British landscape, as imagined by a young (17) artist-to-be with a vivid fantasy…! After reading books, or Comic book adaptions('Illustrerte Klassikere') like "Tom Brown's Schooldays" by Thomas Hughes(1822-96) or Charles Dickens' novels, I was greatly inspired

In the early 1960s I started to try oil painting. First I diluted them in spirits ond painted on paper. Later I used canvas.

Stemmer det at du har besøkt Rohingyiland? Tenker det er et viktig år å komme fram med gammel (40 år er nokså gammelt i dag) kunnskap i en akutt sak.
