Long saturday

A very long working day is coming to end. My hands are filled with color, my hair with dust. I have eaten nothing but crap food today... but I´m happy. It´s moving along fine. Some minor mistakes, a lot of lessons learned and very interesting to see things come togather. And I can´t even say how happy I am to be surrounded with a great family that helps out alot:)

Crazy thursday

V has a cold and had to stay home from kindergarden today. And when Johan picked up J from kindergarden he threw up on the way home. That gives us 2 sick kids tomorrow. I´m so grateful that my mother comes to help out with the kids this weekend. And so very thankful for the help we get from Johans parents with the new apartment, we couldn´t do this without them!

This weekend.

Things are moving forward. We have exactly two more weeks and then everything have to be done and our old apartment have to be empty and clean. I must say I have a problem visualizing that day right now...

A lot to get done!

This is how it feels in my head right now, so many paths to follow! I hope you are enjoying your weekend:)

Finally weekend!

Love lectures cause they give me the opportunity to draw without having a goal with the drawing...
Finally it´s weekend, and renovation time!
Have a great friday!

Alexandras studio

Today I visited Alexandra in her studio, her work is absolutly fantastic. Even more fantastic in real life! To bad I didn´t bring my camera, these photos are taken with my cellphone and they don´t do her paintings right.
I´m hoping to get the studio next door to Alexandras, it would be just great!

Card for my grandfather

It´s my grandfathers birthday on friday, he will turn 80 years. I´m working on a card for him, since the renovation of the new apartment keeps me from Värmland (where he lives) right now.
He was the cutest, he said : to bad that you don´t live closer, then I could have helped you with the painting...
I don´t know anyone that think of himself less then he does. He´s the best!

Fashion drawing

Today I was asked to take on a class in fashion drawing. Not really what I do, but what the heck, I love challanges! Some weeks ago I said that I waited for someone to come and ask me to do something thats figurative, I guess someone somewhere heard me!
Tonight I started to prepare...
I must be crazy.

Info for swedish readers!

This spring I will be teaching at Art collage here in Gothenburg. Here comes some information about that in swedish!
Om ni är intresserade av att lära er allt om rapporterade mönster passa på att gå den här kursen med mig som lärare på Art collage (folkuniversitetet) i vår. Kursen startar i slutet av februari och jag lovar att jag ska lära er allt jag kan:)
Jag kommer dessutom hålla i en grundkurs i illustration på samma ställe, fast på tisdagar, och det tror jag kommer bli en riktigt rolig och innehållsrik kurs!
Jag och Pernilla håller en workshop i illustration under en helg i mars och karin och jag ska lattja med handtryck under en workshop i mars. 
Kanske vi ses?

I showed my portfolio at great Stylt this afternoon. Jihaa, what an allert impression I must have made...not!

Kitchen plans

I spent last night planning the new kitchen and some things are very hard to decide. Since we already have kitchen cabinets in our livingroom functioning as storage right now (second image), I would like to re-use them in our new kitchen. So that kind of sets the style and I´m kind of tired of that style:( So I need to be creative and figure out a solution that works!
Atleast one decision is made, the floor will be red and it will continue out in the corridor where we will let the old wallpaper live. So two things are setting the style so far: that old wallpaper (cause I love it) and the kitchen cabinets (cause I´m stingy, is stingy the word for "snål", swedish people?).
Now I really need to get some work done on Marilyn!
