A brand new batch of artmoney for the upcoming exhibition in Bredgade, Cph. Petals and plants from my garden incoorperated on my ‘usual’ recycled cardboard and gesso ground – and sealed with enchaustic I bought when visiting Tara in Philadelphia last autumn. I’m quite happy about the result – and realize I need to find a near by enchaustic outlet for further supplies.

Anyway, the opening will be the 24. October at 2 o’clock with opening speech by Uffe Elbek founder of Alternativet. I wish I could be there it use to be a great day- but my schedule says Bodø, Norway this time – and I wouldn’t miss that either.

Saturday Flea Market

Cleanups and Space Clearing has always had a liberating and uplifting effect on my mood and general well being. I love when energy circulates and things that previously stood unused come in handy again – in a new context.

So most definitely my Saturday flea market here from the garage door and the pavement has been a great solution. Pure win-win. I get my stuff organized and sorted out and even earns little doing so. Well, not much – but enough so I bother hang on a little yet. Plan to keep my blue (found this bucket of old paint in the cellar last week…) doors open as long as I can keep warm – and think it’s funny.

Also it’s  a way to introduce myself – I think the whole neighborhood, more or less, has passed by for coffee, apple pie and flea market finds during the last couple of months.

Double course in Norway

10637724_10152367310718131_129891268_nHave just scheduled a mixed-media course in Norway with my friend, painter Anne-Mette Nyland, where we teach together: artists books, collages, signs and symbols two consecutive weekends this fall. You can attend both weekends and go deeper with the subject  – or you can choose to attend just one weekend.

The courses will take place in a colleague’s studio – absolutely stunning located at Fleinvær near Bodø. I’m SO excited!

A long and lovely summer – even though holidays started with my granddad passing away next to Midsummer. Now holidays have come to an end – but luckily summer is still here. Late summer yes. But a most blessed and abundant season of the year. In fact all summer has been pure abundance. London culture and family tour, high energy summerweek course/camp at Testrup, bicycle trip with Bj to Silkeborg and Samsø, and now a quick Copenhagen visit ahead…
