Ewa Lowe’s eyes challenge:

It seems like I have to help you guys a little, finding strange things with Ewa’s eyes.

When you paint eyes 👀 you usually put a tiny, single white highlight spot on top of the black pupil. I took it a little further and painted a little white airplane in her right eye and a bird in her left eye. You can only see it when you enlarge the painting.

She also has something called ; full heterochromia. What is that?

Winter Wonderland

EnglishMy daughter Line Newermann captured this Norwegian winter wonderland with her drone. Norway has beautiful hiking nature. Up North since it is pitch black for the majority of the day during winter, many of our northern cities make illuminated ski tracks so that everyone can stay active outside in the winter. Drone: 3DR Solo, Camera: GoPro4Black


Norwegian2Min datter Line Newermann, har tatt et vinter bildet med sin drone. Norge har mange flotte stier i naturen. Siden det er mørkt ute mesteparten av vinteren i nord, så har vi lysløper som alle kan bruke for å stå på ski, så vi kan være aktive ute på vinteren. Drone: 3DR Solo, Kamera: GoPro4Black

Here you see a close up of Ewa Lowe’s eyes. She is the Protagonist in my sci fi thriller: Fear is in the Air. Do you notice something very unusual that I have painted in her eyes? The first three people who gets it right (it’s actually three things that are strange) will get two of my postcards free (you can see the postcards on my “for sale” page).

Good 😊 Luck!
