Oil Paintings by Njord Kane

Here are a few of the surviving photographs (very bad photos, as these paintings were usually 24×36 inches) of some of the oil paintings by Njord Kane.  The photographs do not show the deep color and detail in the paintings. In every painting there is some folklore imagery hidden. Hidden images are also in the paintings with folklore imagery overtly shown, with the additional images cleverly concealed.

In this painting called “Droplets”, we put a color enhanced version underneath to show the vividly of the colors used.

In “Droplets”, we zoomed in on the image to show the detail of the water droplets. There is a color enhanced version underneath to show the vividly of the colors used.

Here is a 36 x 24 inch oil painting of a faerie near a waterfall. There were several painting such as these which included other mythical beings from folklore such as huldra, trolls, faeries, and nisse. Many others contain Norse, Germanic, Slavic, or Celtic deities.

This is a painting of the Gerðr, wife of the god Freyr, with a a detailed painting of the moon in the background. Njord used florescent paint to lightly coat the outer paint layer over the moon so it glowed in the dark. Njord traded this painting in 2008 for a “Rock Band” PlayStation 2 gaming console for his kids to a gentleman who has since passed away. The painting’s current owner and whereabouts are unknown at this time.

Njord’s paintings were made while he resided in El Reno, Oklahoma. They were all painted from memory without the aid of pictures and painted in a single setting within an hour. Here is a remarkable painting of a beach.

Waterfalls are some of the most common features in his paintings.

We have a few more photographs recovered we will be soon adding as soon as they are verified as being authentic. It is well known that Njord signed a secret symbol made up of his initials that he sometimes hid in his paintings and require expert verification.
