yesterday


"You will get plenty of time for resting once you're dead"

That's one of the sayings from my father's part of the family from Småland. Småland is a part of Sweden where people are known to be hard working ... and careful with money. (Ingvar Kamprad, who is the man behind IKEA, is from Småland)

Yesterday I worked on my Fishes and Birds prints all day and then I started teaching my screen printing course at 17:00. When I left KKV at 21:00 there was that special smell of evening in spring - and I felt very tired and alive. The course goes on all weekend; I'll see if I manage to get any photos to post here of me in action teaching. One of my students tried to take photos today, but she said I just got all blurry because I didn't stay still!

In the left bottom corner you can see part of the sketch I made for the print

The first part of the bird has been printed

Feeling both 'tired and alive' is a good feeling. It sums up a good day, when you are happily exhausted yet awakened to all things. I love the like the look of your work for Birds and Fishes. It's drawing nearer and I am so excited to be a part of this project too. I am getting there. Getting there.
