Queen Sonja has her debut as an artist. There will be an exhibition in Helsingborg, Sweden, one of the largest exhibitions of graphic art ever in Scandinavia where she'll set out eight of her own prints. Queen Sonja's pictures are prints based on photographs she took during a trip to Svalbard in 2006.
The fact that the Queen has now chosen to exhibit her own art has also something to do with her desire to improve conditions for artists. The surplus goes into the fund of the Queen Sonja scholarship.

The NRF published some pictures on their website. They show Queen Sonja working with the prints together with Kjell Nupen, Trykker Gunnar Holmgren, Ørnulf Opdahl and Ole Larsen.

Do I only have the impression that the Queen doesn't have as many official appearances as before or is it true ??

I don't think she has a lot but I don't think that's anything very new. I don't think she's had all that many for at least a couple years now.

I share that impression, Maura724.

Yesterday evening she had one of those appearances and attended the Norwegian
Archaeological Society's 75th anniversary in Oslo.

Queen Sonja does look very smart here in her charcoal grey suit and turquoise green blouse. Not certain if I like the thick black hose but then again it is very cold in Oslo at the moment. She still looks lovely though.
