Erin went to Chicago for the weekend and when she came home she surprised me with this amazing Skagen watch! The only watch I've ever owned was a $10 one from Wal-Mart, so this is a big moment! #skagen
"Oda painting Niels Gaihede", a motif painted by her husband Christian Krohg in 1888. The Norwegian couple were a part of the group of artists called "Skagenmalerne", painters and others who flocked to Northern Denmark to depict and describe the magical light there, and to enjoy life in general. ✨
Apart from scenes from and in nature, the locals were popular motifs, and the Gaihede family was depicted numerous times. But what I love about this one is that it feels like a snapchat motif, or a sneak peek through a window, a brief moment captured by camera rather than a painted one.
The painting is today in the care of Skagen Museum. #skagenmuseum#odakrohg#christiankrohg#gaihede#skagen#fisherman#fishermansfriend#punintended#odalasson#skagenmalerne
