    Beautiful — I told you that there was a gift in you – you only had to find it; then explore it and create your feelings into powerful images. As always all my love Knut

    It pleases me to announce that I won “best painting” in the category “advanced” at the Southern Alberta art competition, and the prize moved me into the category of “masters”.

    Finally having received some recognition, I decided to withdraw from public shows as “Master”, mostly because of the fact that people in Southern Alberta are not interested in buying master paintings. They are unwilling or unable to pay even the lowest price of 1 $ per square inch, simply because huge paintings of any subject can be had in many stores for much under 100 $. I enjoy my own paintings in my home, and I give and have given many away, which is more satisfying than selling a painting which takes, for example, a whole week of intense work, for 100 dollars, give or take.
    Thank you for the praises and compliments I have received.
