Illustration Friday´s theme this week is Focused. I found this quote, that I really liked, on a quote-site. I think the quote could just as well be for women, but traditionally, I guess it´s a masculine virtue to be focused on one thing at a time, while women are supposedly able to think of several [...]
Another day of painting and listening. New audio-book. This time there are crime-scenes both in Sweden and London. Young gay boys being killed. And several heros are trying to solve the case. I´m not liking the greyish-red wall in the background, it´s way too heavy. Even though I´m not finished with it, I want to [...]
Lisa Swifka created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. Since then it´s become a huge thing, with over 900 participants last year, this year even more, I´m sure. I´m a little late joining the event, but [...]
This is actually more interesting for local people in Sunnhordland as pure information, than as an art-post. It´s one of the projects I´m working on, a project-choir, who over two weekends will be rehearsing ABBA-songs, and at the end of the second weekend, have a concert.
My friend Michelle just launched her new line of clocks and piggy-banks. Visit her site and see some of her new yummy stuff. You can even buy some of her things via her site. Although most of her line is sold in stores most all over the world, pretty much. Not in Norway, yet, as [...]
Well, here we go again. Second part of the big picture. Acrylics on wood. I´m still nervous.

I listen to audio-books. Right [...]
This is a totally ironic piece, as women (usually) are far safer drivers than men!
For Bømlo Art group, I made this little poster, which hopefully will draw local artists on all levels from amateur to professionals, to join in our annual Amateur-exhibition. It will be open for a month this summer, and the theme this year is WATER. The deadline for signing up for the exhibition is March 15th. [...]
It´s been a cold winter. As you all know. I am always a bit disappointed at the winter-collections in the shops. So many lovely sweaters, and so few of them in wool. Acrylics doesn´t make me too happy, and it certainly doesn´t make me warm. So when I saw this lovely 100% wool tweed-jersey fabric [...]
It´s been such a fun and busy weekend! In addition to working with the costumes for charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we had sessions on design, pattern-making, overlocking, do´s and don´t´s, aging/distressing costumes, to mention some. Here the ladies are busy at the sewing machines. The designer who told us on Friday evening that she [...]« Previous Entries
