interpretation

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

This beautiful painting is made by Sylva Marwoll and it hangs above the kitchen table at my friend´s house. Two young boys of 4 had spent some time looking at the maps in an atlas.

backdrop progress

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Bits and pieces and baby-steps. As more and more of the background is covered by a backing-color, the progress will only show in smaller parts of the backdrop. I´ve laid gold-leaf on God´s eye.

Redesign weekend

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Let´s start the weekend with Nina´s own design. This is her birch from the garden that instead of ending up as fire-wood, turned into a jewelry-ladder. Anyone who´s ever been a scout recognizes the knots and can see that this is an easy-make. Practical, natural and beautiful. Nina´s doilies made into table-runner. Looks good, doesn´t […]
