  • Interests
    I adore painting Miniatures.
    I'm a bit like a memory Machine...I don't forget much.
    I don't look at television, but I study constantly .
    I speak/read/write Norwegian, Latin, and I only admit to knowing some of four other's.
    I love Museums (and seen some of the worlds best).
    I also was fortunate to have traveled widely (despite being raised in an orphanage),
    and that has colored my expanded view of the world.
    At 69 I have discovered love, and what it is like to be the center of someone else's world,
    I also have my focus on them, and what a difference that makes.
    I would love to teach others to paint miniatures, and may do so in Portland, Oregon.

About Me

I retired as of 14 May 2014.  I adore painting miniatures.  I have been very lucky in some areas of my life.  I have worked two jobs since I was 30.  I earned one salary to support myself, and my second salary was placed in cash envelopes and dispensed to the poor.  Lets just say I was adding to a "future" Retirement fund beyond this life. I still do some professional clergy services for free. I love going to my beloved Norway as often as possible, and as much as my relatives will put up with me.  I am now Bi-Lingual in Norwegian.  One strange thing about me is that I  don't look at Television.  It has been over twenty five years since I owned a tube.  If I am around one it is like a brain magnet, sucking the content out of my head.  I don't miss it at all.  My news is acquired from five Norwegian newspapers, or other foreign language newspapers that I read on a 52" computer monitor.  I read a lot, and now I paint a lot ! I also mix my own colors, I don't use colors out of the dropper.  I find it much more satisfying to make my own color mixes.  It appears that my normal speed is one miniature a week, though I have been doing more elaborate basing these days.  That means that I have slowed down quite a bit.  I treasure some of the friendships I have made in the Forum.  I recently went through a bout of surgery's and medical attention.  It has been wonderful picking up my brushes and miniatures once again.  Missed doing them, and my friends here on the Forums.  I have been offered AND ACCEPTED an apartment in Portland, Oregon allowing me to be near my wonderful Children.  It is in walking distance of places I like to visit.

I moved to Portland, Oregon on Saturday, 18 August 2018.  I gave up my car, and I don't miss it at all.

I also NOW have a painting desk with a window in front of it.  I can paint with as much natural light as I wish.  It is magnificent.

I live in a beautiful area, surrounded by Victorian ginger bread houses.  A walk around here just brings me to tears sometimes.  It is

amazingly beautiful.  I also have been given the most wonderful gift that one may receive.  I have fallen in love, and those feeling are

reciprocal.  I now wear a promise/engagement ring on my hand.  After all these years, its a bit overwhelming to discover how lucky I have become.
