Greetings from Norway!

Post by forsty » Wed Mar 13, 2019 7:19 pm

Hello friends!

My name is Forsty and I'm from Norway! I've been a huge fan of Bonanza for years, but I've never had any people who I could share the interest with.
So I'm very excited to join this forum! (I have never been on a forum before, so I apologize for any wrong turns that may occur before I get more used to the site!)

I first watched the show on reruns waaay back in the day, before I could even speak or understand english! Every morning they would show reruns of "Lassie", "Skippy" and Bonanza!
I remember I was very intrigued by those guys on horses, even though I couldn't read the subtitles nor understand what they were saying. I was probably around 5 years old!

Years later, when I was 19, my interest for the show sparked up and I've been hooked ever since. The show, the characters and the actors have helped me through some very difficult times in my life and it holds a special place in my heart. And I'm very excited to get to share the interest with others!

I'm an artist, so expect to see some fanarts from me! My artstyle is heavily inspired by cartoons and animations such as Disney or Dreamworks, and not very realistic, but hopefully people will still enjoy!

:thankyou
