Nuropo is a song from a band I love. Heilung. You can read all about the etymology of the name here.
Norupo is an ancient Old Norse poem, written in a form of proto-Scandinavian called Proto-Norse. The poem is about the Old Norse gods and goddesses, and their interactions with the natural world. I chose to name this painting because of the influence of the song of the same name by the band Heilung.
The painting is all about doing the opposite of what I’ve done in the past month. How intense can I get the fire of the sun when juxtaposed against the grays of the sea and clouds. What mystery is happening back there in the distance?
