"California Dreaming"

Terje Nordberg, born in Norway, is now living the good life in Northern California; he is an artist showing his work here in the gallery — and he has started capturing what makes California California in a comic strip called "California Dreaming."

Terje Nordberg began his career as a comic book artist, but soon switched from drawing to writing. His popular children's books have been published in a number of countries. He has also created several graphic novels, most notably one used to promote the Norway Winter Olympics in Lillehammer.

"California Dreaming" will gently poke fun at California and Californians, expose our sheer nuttiness, and allow us to laugh at ourselves in a weekly comic strip.

He is published in our local paper Campbell Express — look for it in the local coffee shops — or subscribe! Call or come in for information.

"Alice's Restaurant" by Terje Nordberg

Just off of the easel (and the creative mind of Terje Nordberg) is "Alice's Restaurant."

This piece continues Terje's mission to capture the beauty, splendor and the sheer nuttiness of California and California Living, and with that being the goal — I feel that Terje hit the bullseye with this piece!

In this painting we see two Happy California Cows arriving at the restaurant, about to park their hot pink Vespa next to a Harley, to pop into Alice's for Brunch.

"Alice's Restaurant" is an original oil on canvas, 30" by 40", please inquire on price and availability.

The Gallery's number is 408.374-5200

Struggling Photographer

I have been struggling to get a good photo of the Los Gatos Cats. With the Cat's being gloss white, and the surrounding vegetation dark — I have not been able to get a 'keeper.'

The plan is a HDR shot — one where several shots with different exposures are taken and then combined in Photoshop to create one photograph with high dynamic range.

On a hunt for California poppies

I am trying to get a nice photograph of California poppies. I want to add to my collection of photographic images that I offer here in the gallery.

So far I have been out shooting or scouting about three times. I have some nice shots — but not yet have I taken 'The One.' I am still trying!

The photograph with this post is one of many that I took at the Los Gatos Creek Trail in Campbell, Calif.
