Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

Creative day 4

By spotogspindel | October 26, 2009

On my fourth day of ARTING with Michelle, we started out at sea! (Or, she´d already been up a couple of hours by the time I was awake, working on her new clock-designs.)

But anyway, my Dad and Axel took us out to the open sea, with 180 degrees of ocean-horizon around us. 2 meter waves, but we got some lovely pictures of the waves breaking over the islands.


Adding more color to our figures. Michelle´s Blue-Bear…

How adorable is this!?!!!


… and my dog finally made it on the wall. Underneath Athena.

I worked more with the eyes, and like them a lot better today.


Michelle´s lovely lady…


And my guy with a bad-hair-day… The hair is a piece of seal-fur I had lying around. Don´t know exactly what I´m gonna do with him. Add a fur-boa, and let him join the cabaret?


We both think working in this medium is very fun, and have plans to explore more of it´s potensial. I already started making a Late-bird. (I didn´t want an Early-bird)


Ok. Back downstairs to keep on ARTING!

    Janne, I love your blog, it’s so colorful and inspiring! I’m checking in almost every day to see if you have any new posts, and you usually do. Looks like you’re having great fun with Michelle. Looking forward to see what’s next! Best wishes, Inger-Marie.

    Oh, I agree – so colorful! So.. what exactly are the materials you’ve used for the animals and the flat/textured paintings? Clay? Just ordinary clay? And, maybe more importantly, what kind of paint are you using? I’m so curious – the effect is fantastic!

    On the pictures we´ve used plaster (sparkel) on watercolor-paper. And the animals are a paper-maché-clay. We bought it here at the local hobby-shop, the brand-name is DAS. And on bothe we painted with acrylics. More or less watered down. But water-color could also be used.
    And thank you both, I am glad you are liking my blog! 🙂
