|Last week the book we made within the Art Project Bortom Orden [Beyond Words] - about the quality concept within fine art - came back from the printer. Cecilia has done a marvellous job with the graphic design! It feels good that yet another project is finished (I was the editor)|

The Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg is from Lysekil (she was awarded the Silver Lion for Promising Young Artist at the Venice Biennale in 2009). Here yo can see a short clip from one of her stop-motion animations.

I've booked the big project room at KKV from the 21st of February (much bigger than my studio). Yesterday I quickly magnified part of my sketch to see it in real size. I knew it was big, but size is always more impressing in reality than in your mind...

I'm in the process of looking for a different approach in my painting, to renew myself, to improve. It's a struggle, but I don't dislike it. I need a crisis, a block, to get out of my comfort zone.

Today I feel as perky as this apple; I got a fever and just learned that a course I was supposed to teach won't happen because of withdrawn governmental funding.(not the one I wrote about last week)
|But, as it says on my studio door: Don't Whine - Do Something! |
So I will. (curse and swear)

|My very first proper Studio day in 2011 didn't result in any major master piece, |
but there are still 360 days to go...

I went to my studio and checked that my plants were still alive, fiddled a bit, went to my frame maker to frame some paintings for my upcoming exhibition (we had a long chat and I got to know him even better), bought some art supplies and did some paper works. This week will probably be mostly preparations, research and administration (bookkeeping!), but next week I'll start some serious studio time - I've so been looking forward to it!
During my vacation I made myself this little box for my new bookbinding supplies following the instructions from Books, Boxes and Portfolios - Binding, Construction and Design Step-by-Step by Franz Zeier (great book). I really enjoyed it! I feel that maybe making a lot of boxes and portfolios could be the way for me to solve my chaos with papers and little things?
