going and coming

Tomorrow I'm going to Istanbul, Turkey! I'll be back Friday - hopefully with photos and some Turkish Delight. Take care everyone and have a nice week!

Doodling on book pages.
I started out randomly filling in some "o's", then drew lines in between, many lines. They came to look like star charts. I then tried coloring with tea and coffee. Coffee was definately better, and I love the effect!

Ice constellations. It's melting fast now, today was the first day of spring!

Bringing Rosa, Olivia and a friend to the studio one day during the spring break. Wonderful to see them in action, painting and drawing.



Olivias self portrait.

My corner of the studio, self portraits on the wall at the moment.

white dogs

Small black ball.
Made this a while ago, makes me long for summer, it looks nice and warm.

Two of Astas pals; Sigge and Nova (Westie and Jack Russell).
Spring is still far away... maybe we can make a snow dog this weekend!

Hope you have a nice weekend too!

strange lands

This was Tuesday.

And this was Wednesday.

Who treaded here? Probably the creature that makes Asta bark furiously (we humans hear nothing).

talking about Turkey

Dinner at Marias, with the rest of my studio mates that I'm going to Turkey with!
We're leaving in ten days, to spend almost 5 days in Istanbul - needless to say, we're thrilled. None of us has been there before, so we had all googled for information. We only found the usual touristy stuff, so; if anyone out there has anything to recommend - all contributions are gratefully received!
The day after we watched Crossing the bridge, a film about the different music scenes in Istanbul, to get into the right mood. I love traditional music played by the Romani people.

This is my contribution to The Pom-Pom Project. My heavy, luscious pompom will be sent to Bournemouth, UK, to participate in a public installation in the Bournemouth Gardens with heaps of others.
But it's hard to part with it, I've become quite attached to it...

And here it only snows, snows and snows...

check out

I have been featured over on Lou Lou & Oscars blog! I'm very proud of this, Lisa did a small interview and a pick from my images on Flickr. She's such a sweet, generous person and a very talented artist herself. Thanks to her blog I've found my way to many interesting, talented people. Be sure to check out her blog and her work!

I did this image and had a go with lots of layers and filters in photoshop - fun!

This evening I'm going to the Modern Dance Theatre in Stockholm to see The Porcelain Project. Inspiring I hope! Haven't been to see dance for years...

birdsong and dogplay

Every cloud is silver-lined, bear that in mind
When old man trouble gets tough
And the going gets rough
Let the worry bird worry for you!
another quote from the song
Let the worry bird worry for you
(Leo Robin/Jule Styne)

Worry bird number two has landed in my Etsy shop!
Meet Åke, a crocheted raven (perhaps?). Tell him your worries and they will be gone!

Lovely days with a lot of snow and cross country skiing. Asta is one happy dog.
