My husband, Martin Mauseth Hvattum, was awarded a travel stipend from Grafill this year. So, in July, we traveled around Norway doing pleinair paintings of the Norwegian landscape. It was a spectacular trip, for many reasons, and the ability to see what Norway is really like, not just from the capitol’s perspective, was insightful. I painted rarely, using the trip instead as a well needed relaxation outlet. But, here are a few paintings that I do think turned out. Ive been trying to challenge myself to focus on values much more, as it has always been a difficult area for me.

The first is a waterfall near Svartisen, the second is unrecorded and unknown. Both are acryla gouache.
