Dag Telhaug

Dag Telhaug lives right by the sea in Spangereid, a short distance from the famous lighthouse at Lindesnes. A one hour drive from Kristiansand. Telhaug is a renowned landscape painter. He draws his main inspiration from the sea, for his naval and maritime motifs, where he paints at Lindesnes, Lista and Jæren. Telhaug depicts the southern coastal landscape and marine landscapes with varied sea bays, beaches, rivers, islets, reefs, and bird life. He conveys the mood, light, and nature in a harmonious way. The waves, the horizon, the weather, and the high sky above the surface of the water give the sea a changing face.
