sverker's horses

Sverker Eklunds girls maybe you saw before here, but not his big, gentle horses. Show at Göteborgs Konstförening (until March 9). Sverker is one of my nice studio neighbors.

Wooden horses, can't get more Swedish than this.

Tomorrow I hope to visit the studio, if everything works well. Couldn't be there as much as I wanted this week, office job calling. Some of the precious continuity it lost but I hope to repair it next week. Wasn't this week shorter than usual?

wow, from a distance that top horse looked ceramic.

Hope lots of productivity inside you, even while away from the actual studio activity. The sun is setting now here, almost tomorrow there.:)

I have really been getting into animal motifs and that top one reminds me of a cheeta print...LOVE IT!

thanks for the kind words...they always make me smile.

Glad you also like the horses! My studioday disappeared in wanderings, the right thing to do today. Hope you also see the sun this weekend!

Love all horses, the top one is my favourite.

i'm drawn to the texture of those deep holes! and the grainy, rough wood is so strong.
