I spent way too much time on this one. In actual fact I didn’t spend so much time painting it but it did set on my table for almost a month while I took time to have surgery and recovery.
Aurora is a Norwegian. I first met her when she sat on the front row of my class near Tonsborg. She was always a bright and lively personality full of smiles so I teased her about becoming the teachers pet which she seemed to like the idea. Though no one really could claim that position Aurora came as close as anyone could. She is now at another university and we are still in occasional contact.
