Hello from Norway :)

  • @Rich-Green Thank you 🙂 I've jumped right in and started a sketchbook here:


  • Welcome Camomilla, I thought everyone in Norway had to have a preapproved Norse name? Maybe I'm thinking of Iceland or Finland? Anyway if you'd like a good challenge from SVS that isn't daily but monthly, look at the link above that says 3rd Thursday and click the first post by Aaron, Will's son... it gives the details, and if you win, you can get a free class!

  • @Bobby-Aquitania Thank you 🙂 I'm not sure what you mean by pre-approved Norse name - my name IRL is Cathrine Helle. That's the same name-convention that most of Europe (and the States) use with a first name and a surname. Helle is my married name, my maiden-name was Magnus. Iceland, however, has the old name-convention where they have their fathers first name and -son or -daughter as their surname. This was the case a few hundred years ago in Norway as well, but I guess we were closer knit to the rest of Europe.

    I'll be sure to check out 3rd Thursday, thank you 🙂

  • Welcome from The Netherlands! Nice to meet you here and I hope that youll find yourself comfy and at home. Nice Santa youve posted. Cant wait to see more.

  • Velkommen! Jeg er Amerikaner. I am trying to learn Norwegian from Duolingo. My dad's side of the family came from Sogn og Fjordane in the 1800's 🙂 Your English is great! I love the idea of the 100 day daily doodle. I am working on a book as a learning tool. I have done everything backwards so far 🙂 You might like the Creative Composition class. I just started it recently and have already benefited from it with my project. I am traditional though someday I guess I will try digital. It would be easier to redo over and over as I do now, digitally, I think. (If I can get the hang of it). Look forward to seeing your work!

  • @Leontine Thank you 🙂 We've been to the Netherlands a few times, sooo nice! So much art, and such friendly people! Will be posting more today, and checking out the other sketchbooks 🙂

    @Marsha-Kay-Ottum-Owen Tusen takk 🙂 Awesome that you want to learn Norwegian! My grandfather was born in Boston, Massachusetts (is that how it's written?). My great grandparents migrated from Norway in the early 1900's and then moved back when times was better back home. We still have some family in the States, unfortunatly noone I know personally. Let me know if you need help with Norwegian, I'm quite good at it ;p

  • Welcome. We share similar stories. I know you will find the art inspiration and education in this group.

  • Welcome Camomilla !!!

  • @Camomilla Takk! You spelled Boston, Massachusettes right-which is no small feat! 🙂

  • Welcome Camomilla! That's a great goal - 100 days in 2016!

  • Thank you all for welcoming me to your community - really looking forward to spending time here! 🙂
