This 2 m Celtic stone cross with rounded arms and a hole in the middle was originally erected near the sea more than 1000 years ago. It was later moved up to the graveyard close to the church in Loen, Nordfjord.

Some years ago T. was captain on the predecessor of the little red push-boat on the picture. But that was a tow-boat, and a smaller one than the current. T. illustrated with his whole body how his little boat leant over to the side when they towed and turned cruice-ships around their own axis.
Today Björn is captain on the pushboat. His wife is boatswain and Sigmundur is First Officer. T. and Björn salut each other with at "good job"-shout when the work is done and the little tug goes into the harbour again.

He works freehand with a little roller on a long stick, only using the ladder for the background colour.
The purpose with his paintings is only to make some joy and amusement to the bypasses.
