Much of what happens within our lives — and in the collective world around us — is disturbingly out of our control, but one of the gifts of life is that there are many little things that are within our element — from the profound — our very thoughts, hidden within the recesses of our soul — to the prosaic — which pair of socks we will wear, soup or sandwiches for lunch, the brand of laundry detergent.
Paintings on one’s wall are a means of controlling the sense of chaos around us, and we need only to walk into the room and catch their eye before our breath slows, becomes more regular, and we pause for thought.
Valley Stream is a tranquil site of hushed movement. The waterway wends its way gently into the background of trees and distant hills, and in contemplating the work, one can cast off the tension and strain of the day’s demands. The beauty of a well done painting is that it transports the viewer to a different time and a different place, without the need for actual physical displacement.
In addition to Steve’s works at Samarah Fine Art, more of the Norwegian Artist’s paintings are available for view and sale at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery. Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ; The Lawrence Galleries, Sheridan and Gleneden Beach, OR; and the Maritime Museum at Mystic Seaport, CT.
The Norwegian Artist invites you to join the e-mail list for the once-a-month, short and informative, e-mail newsletter of Steve Henderson Fine Art. He also invites you to explore the ongoing series of articles about purchasing online art from private artists, Purchasing a Painting over the Internet: Is It Safe? Buying a Painting Online: Make Sure That What You See Is What You Get, and Buying a Painting: How Do I Know That an Artwork is Good?
Ensign Chekhov did not find a permanent seat at the console until well into the five-year mission of seeking out new worlds. Although Lt. Sulu to his left kept busy advancing the ship to warp speed, firing on Klingons and Romulans, and setting course for Mark 7, 332.592, Ensign Chekhov spent most of his time looking intense, scowling down at the console (“Vhat are all these blinking lights for? Vhat vould happen if I pressed this button?”), and muttering.
He is perhaps best known for his Rrrrrrussian accent, achieved largely through exchanging his w’s with his v’s, and wice-wersa.
In the recent J.J. Abram’s Star Trek movie (surely, there’s a sequel on its way?), Chekhov’s accent, which according to our Tired-of-Being-Youngest progeny is simply a stronger version of the real thing, is almost insurmountable. Even the computer had difficulty accepting his access code — “This is Weser Weser Tree” or something of the sort — and his brilliant analysis of how to solve the problem of the red matter in the hands of the mentally disturbed Romulan approximated the diatribe of precautions rattled on in a prescription drug commercial.
All the same, Chekhov is an endearing character, an emotional polar opposite of the icy cool blue Mr. Spock. His childhood was spent, not in an English boarding school where they would have hammered away at and eventually destroyed that accent, but in Russia itself, where his family lived on a small farm, like Winterscape Farm, in the country. His hot-headed personality kept him warm in the long, cold winters, and on snowy afternoons he trudged about after the cows, muttering, “Vhere are they? Oh, how I vant to be in Star Fleet!”

Joseph Canyon is located in Oregon, near the Hell’s Canyon National Park. Relatively level forest land abruptly and steeply drops off to the vista below, and the silence is broken only by the soft sighing of the wind. The viewer is transported to the southwest without ever leaving the northwest.
What an incredible region the Far West — Idaho, Oregon, Washington — is! If a person is not fortunate enough to live here, then he or she can own a piece of it for their wall.
