ABC Wednesday

Today I have joined another web community, the ABC Wednesday.
Round 2 starts with the A
A for he first letter in the Alphabet.
A for Arne
A for Art.
A for my birthplace Aalesund.
A for a lot of possibility to Announce your thoughts and works through the ABC Wednesday.

Picasso once said "Art Can Only Be Erotic", and on this first day of Round 2, I have chosen ART and show you two of my own paintings: The Putter and The Ornament.

I also present an Artificial image of my birthplace AALESUND (normaly written with the Nordic letter Å).

A quarter after 2 am, January 23. 1904 (last night for 104 years ago) the fire that destroyed the old city, mainly built of wooden houses, was reported to the fire brigade. When coming under control 850 houses was destroyed and 10.000 people had no place to take shelter.
The extent of the damage caused by the fire can be seen at this link and by moving the arrow over the today city-photo.

If you want to join the ABC Wednesday go to mrsnesbitt´s place today and just register at the bottom of today´s post.

Welcome to the club! Where better to start than with oneself - and one's own work?

You do know colours!

AND A is for artist = you! I also chose art for my theme this week. Come and see--it's a bit different than yours. I was not the artist either. . .

Hi ArneA,

A very warm welcome to Mrs Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday.

Sorry I haven't posted my story yet, but I've been out of thehouse all evening (Wednesday night here in Oz!!!) My post will be up by Wednesday 6pm your time.

Glad you liked the ISS paper plane story. I reckon they still have to do some more wind tunnel testing to see what temperatures it can withstand!

What a great post you have here. Very informative and the images are so very colourful.

Welcome, once again. Do keep in touch.

Welcome to ABC Wednesday! Those are beautiful paintings. Did you paint them? I will add you to my blogroll and thank you for commenting on my post today. I saw "The Rock" on tv right after I returned from my trip. How appropriate!
