More photos from Denmark

To publicize the exhibition, the gallery made a banner for the front of the building. They had printed a copy of a painting of mine for the ground and then put the names of the artists on top of that. It is a very successful way of advertising.


Before the opening reception, we went across the street to an amazing restaurant for brunch. The chef is a twenty-five year old Russian immigrant of exceptional talent.


After the reception a fair size group of us went back for dinner.  Most Danes speak some English so the conversation was lively and the food superb.


And then dessert, figs dipped in chocolate with a raspberry sauce


Thora began wondering about my obsession about taking photos of the food. It makes a good way to remember the taste, the place and the presentation. Food is such a universal form of communication. Not only is it a need but also an aesthetic pleasure.


About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.

    My dad took a picture of every meal we had in Scandinavia as well! We ended up in northern Jutland visiting new friends (longish story, but they own the farm next to the farm my great grandmother was born on) and I told them about your exhibit.

    I wish our time in Denmark had coincided with yours–it’s a gorgeous country!
