My wife, Fang, is on vacation in Sweden. Today I received an e-mail with the comment: "I saw a FJR go by me in Norrköping yesterday as I was walking to the train station. Very cool."

Who was that cool Swede????

Hello James
It wasn´t me although I am a cool Swede:-)
I am a little bit more south in our oval country.

Thanks for the note back, Rhino. I think you're about the closest we're gonna get. And besides, I made a new on-line friend. Ever hear of Hans Gude the Norwegian painter? That's my name, and I'm related. I paint too.

See ya,

Hans

JB,
Just had to research this matter and make sure you weren't making all this up! So, what kind of painting do you do? Houses! yahoo.gif

Found a second 'picture' by your Norwegian dude:

It's all true. When I'm not writing trip reports for the Forum for creative outlet, I paint. In terms of what I paint, I actually am trying to paint the kind of landscapes my great great grandfather did, whom I'm named after. But other stuff too. Here's some examples of my paintings:
