I received this photo from my friend Sigmund Aarseth a few weeks ago. He and his wife Ingebjorg live in this beautiful log house in Norway. I think they have had a lot of snow this year, but what a beautiful day this shows! I have been to their home a couple of times, it just reminds me of Monet's house and garden as they have built it and maintain the garden for Sigmund's gorgeous paintings. He doesn't have to walk far to see a paintable subject.
