The watercolour "Helenium" found a new home in Norway

  The open studio event went well this year with lots of positive visitors, enthusiastic art lovers and interesting people. One painting was sold to a family living in Norway. A problem arose though when they tried to fit the rather large painting into the car's roof box to transport it home. They had taken measurements and thought it would fit, but the streamlined roof box had rounded corners and no matter how they squeezed and tipped and turned, they just couldn't close the box. In the end they put it diagonally over the back seat. I hope both the painting and the family arrived home safely.
