In 2005 I was in Stavanger / Norway for a few weeks to do an internship there for my studies. Near the town you can visit the Swords in the Rock (Svord i Fjell) – a popular destination for tourists. As I chose a very small panel, only 18 x 13 cm tall, it was difficult for me to paint the swords. Good that they are not very straight in their shape in reality. But next time, when I want to paint so many details again, I will choose a bigger panel or a bigger canvas. I also have to be more disciplined, to paint only in good light conditions and not to paint something quickly just because I do not have that much time. The result is important. Might be that in the future I will not be able to present a painting every week.
