mid summer

Celebrating the summer solstice this year in a very relaxed way, with friends in the countryside. Lovely days with both rain and shine. Musts on the midsummer dinner table: season's fresh potatoes, strawberries and flowers.

new colleague in the block

Camilla Engman was a temporary neighbor all winter, subletting the studio next door to me at Konstepidemin. Now it's even better, she is a permanent resident in her own studio space since a few weeks.

Invited for premiere coffee break today, only worry it's so nice I stay too long instead of working hard as I should...

In the park of Slottskogen was a one day exhibition a while ago, Tombola Parksalong. Great event, where the blooming shrubs in the azalea valley competed with the art pieces - installations as well as performances. Fun and heartly art event by Tombola, a group of Göteborg artists.

To mention just a few of all the artists in the park salon:

summer started

For me, summer starts today. I've worked franticallly at my office job, to make free time for studio work this summer. No stress ahead, just lots of hard work to enjoy.

Photos from around Gerlesborgsskolan some weeks ago, the art school located in the very heart of Bohuslän, Swedish west coast.

And there are guest studios and accomodation...
