Meling Elementary School had a “visit-from-a-local-artist-day” at school today. 39 10-year olds for four hours. Such great fun. We drew and bleached and painted. Some of the paintings turned out quite amazing! They had never had anything about mixing colors / color-theory before, so I just quickly had a show-and-tell, no more than 4 minutes [...]
Another baby-sized pink silk satin duvet- and pillow-cover suddenly appeared on my worktable this weekend. Let´s hope one of my soon-to-be-relatives will be a little girl The inlayed fabric is silk brocade from India.
I made this little steam-punk-ish pendant a while ago. Minimizing a picture I made of my Grand-dad, copying it onto transparency film, and cutting it into shape. The pendant has two pieces of glass to protect the film. I combined it with a small enameled bead I made at Art & Soul (top left) and [...]
My niece and nephew are home! And whenever they come home, they come ringing on my door early in the morning, asking if they can paint. My sister says they think it´s cool to have a real artist as an aunt! I found some mini-canvases, which they thought were REALLY small, but we finally agreed [...]
Since I am soon to become an aunt, I am testing out different techniques in decorating ordinary onesies. Today I´m testing transfer-paper-print. The girl is a collage I made for an If-theme a while ago. The print is a HP iron-on transfer. Honestly, I am not sure how much washing the transfer from these packages can [...]
Bømlo Art Group is 30 years this year, and we´re celebrating with more exhibitions than usual, starting with two already now in February. This is the two posters I made for the occasions. The artwork on them is of course the artists´.
I´ve been wanting to make a big painting of sea-houses at sunset. I found a wooden plate in the cellar, and gave it a red wash. After a couple of layers, the shapes are defined. This time I wanted to try something new: the extra heavy gel medium. I´m repainting everything I already had painted [...]
I´ve never used this extra heavy gel, but it was FUN! Well, working with a spatula is always fun. The gel was really easy to mix with the paint, such a smooth texture. It´s still very smooth to apply on to the wood-panel I´m working on. After it´s covered the area I wanted. Now I [...]

My new neighbor´s arrival is coming closer and closer. It´s their first baby, so they need all sorts of stuff for him. So when my brother-in-law celebrated his birthday, part of his present was a little baby one-piece to match his adult Tshirts. Using alphabet-stamps and fabric paint, you can easily make your own, personalized [...]« Previous Entries
