A Pink Moment in the City

A Pink Moment in the City

Happiness is when you see a glimmer of your favorite colour as you’re walking through the inner city of Stockholm. You are walking towards the shops, but change rout and are drawn in… Related PostsReflect upon your blessings How to make your Art Journal Page Bloom Little nuggets of Joy

Eye Candy: Blue and White Anemone

Eye Candy: Blue and White Anemone

The most beautiful sign of spring is the forest spring flowers. In the brown, bare woods tiny white flowers rise their heads in spring. At places, if you’re lucky, they cover the entire ground and makes you think snow has come back… In Gotland this is also true for the Blue Anemone, which is rare […]

365 Collages | Week 17

Count on me. It’s the Last of April and day number 120 of 2013. I guess that means I’m way over a hundred collages this year. Amazing and good! Today I’ve created six new collages for project 365 and I still enjoy making them! A whole lot! I have picked flowers as a theme this […]

A visit to Nationalmuseum in Stockholm

A visit to Nationalmuseum in Stockholm

Stockholm has been full of wonderful craft exhibitions this year. We’re celebrating the organisation Hemslöjden who is still going strong on its 100th year.

The truly great advances of this generation will be made by those who can make outrageous connections, and only a mind which knows how to play can do that. Nagle Jackson Self portrait, of some sort.

Another peek into the wonderous place of the Art Journal… Pink Geraniums painted with acrylic, or rather smashed into the journal with a very old and stiff brush. You see roses? Or wild flowers? They could be any flowers, because I didn’t add any details. I just felt like painting. And I was thinking about […]

Week in the life still going strong. I’m taking a lot of photos and documenting almost everything. I love this project! Today I’m sharing a few SOOC (Straight Out of the Camera) pictures.

Photography is happiness

Photography is happiness

Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! […]

On the streets of spring

On the streets of spring

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, […]
