After harvest a lot of straws are left behind. Some machine – I understand it is a roundpressmachine (one word in danish) - made a lot of rolls, compressing the straws for easier transportation. I also understand that a squarepresser uses more energy than the roundpresser, but squarepressed straws are cheaper to transport because of their form.
Arne Haugen Sørensen is a famous Danish artist. Today he was in Roskilde participating in the opening of an exhibition of water-colour paintings. He is 80 years old and still going strong, as you see. He was busy signing books, cards and posters and seemed to enjoy beeing in Roskilde.
The exhibition, “Den passionerede”, ends September 16th, 2012. Information at Palæfløjen, Roskilde Kunstforening.
At Arne Haugen Sørensen you can see some of his painting.
