Stril Orion

By spotogspindel | October 29, 2011

Simon Møkster Shipping newly built supply ship Stril Orion is being Christened today. I delivered the artwork for all the common-areas, and a smaller picture for all the cabins.

This is the picture you first see when you come into the mess. It feels like the signature picture for the boat, and I am sorry I can´t show you a bigger version with more details in it.

“Horizon”, 50×120 cm

Next to it hangs another picture, with motif from the rocky beach only a few hundred yards from where the ship was built in Søvika.

“Orion Søviknes”, 50×75 cm

The last picture in the mess, also with motif from the area around where the ship was built.

“Sunnmøre”, 40×80 cm

An exert from the text on the picture:

Here you can see the pictures on the walls in the mess.

Yet another picture with motif from the area around the shipyard, these beautiful old boat-houses decorate the day-room.

“Søvik boathouses”, 40×75 cm

On the opposite wall you´ll find this picture of ropes on an old wooden sail-ship.

And here you can see them on the walls.

Another picture with ropes. I think the ropes tell so many silent stories of hard work.

“Ropes”, 60 x 90 cm

From the smokers lounge.

If we move further up into the ship, we come to the cabins. This is the captains cabin.

“Moka”, 50 x 75 cm

I found this old boat in Port Townsend at Artfest this spring, and fell for the withered charm.

(The captain was just moving in, so I had to cut away all the luggage from the photo 😉

“Bounty-anchor”, 50 x 75 cm

This is the anchor on the Bounty. I guess the title gave that away 😉 It is in the chief´s cabin.

The final common room on this ship is the conference-room. A work-area for meetings and office-work. So I thought a big picture with vibrant colors would be suitable here.

“Red!”, 80 x 100 cm

All my best wishes for Stril Orion on her journey!

    Thanks for the info on the ship! I was at the christening and took a 10 second video of the mayor breaking the champagne on the ship if you’d like to see it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/73939747@N00/6291811908

    Heh, I hate coming to look at what Janne has done. You are so talented it makes me want to cry (and makes me happy). You do so much good work I feel lazy (and I work all the time!).

    And the wonderful thing is that you are getting your work out there in the real world and people will appreciate for years to come. Just as they should.

    I like these a lot Janne.
    Not sure about the earings. I don’t know if pink is my colour – especially in spring.

    Hope you are warm 🙂

    Now I am off to look at the million trillion things I missed. !
