A few more thoughts

I met some interesting people on the walking tour. From all over. From Australia, San Francisco, even a New Yorker living on Oslo for over forty years. In general I’d say, the Danes and Norwegians have been very helpful and friendly when I’ve asked for help but I don’t find the overwhelming friendliness I am used to back home. There a walk down the road is a continual gesture of hello, even if I don’t know the person. Here it is more like New York. Friendly when approached, yet while maintaining respect for personal space. That may be a function of a northern, big city. An interesting contrast for me.


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.
