time to celebrate

I'm so glad! Sketch competition for two artists (like a sketch battle): final result was in my favor. This is what I didn't want to show until the decision was made. The wall stands in the entrance to the Lidköping hospital which is being renovated next spring.

My sketch is based on, absolutely not scientifically true at all, life forms that might be seen in a microscope if they ever existed. It will be a mix of my own ceramic shapes and mosaic areas. I'm so looking forward to doing this!

Most of all I'm celebrating all the precious time I won. Relieved by two phone calls; one telling the other commission I'm working on doesn't need to be finished until after New Year. The other telling this new doesn't need to be finished early spring but rather late summer. Suddenly I can think about other things but only work. Like friends! And bake saffron buns! And lie in bed reading mystery novels all day! Or do nothing at all!

I wish you have a weekend doing whatever makes you happy.

ah Blessings erupting all over you! Very nice!

I love this line, this idea, "My sketch is based on, absolutely not scientifically true at all, life forms that might be seen in a microscope if they ever existed." Its so playful and full of life, and you just created them!

Molecules of peace, maybe.
I sat by the fire last night, lazy as a summer toad. :) Enjoy.
