|Today we visited the Art Museum and saw the exhibition on Jan Lööf (illustrator, model-builder, writer, film-maker and more). They have made a playful little exhibition with fun solutions. The kiddo enjoyed it a lot and was especially fascinated with how the films were made; they showed black and white behind the scenes clips with the models and figures and then clips with the results. (My genius 6 year old son is already making stop motion movies with his lego and my old digital camera)|

|My studio neighbour Cissi has been working on a public commission for a preschool at the same time as I have been working on my commissioned art piece (the one in my last post). So I've been following her work in progress for a year and I've been so curious to see the final results. Today I finally got to see Cissi's patterns printed on different fabrics. It might look good on the screen, but it is so so much better in real life!|
Unfortunately Cissi is moving to another studio :(
I'll miss you, Cissi!

|Sometimes I feel it has all gotten so serious with my art - it's my livelihood and all my life. What about sometimes doing things just for fun and no other purpose? |
So - when Pikaland announced you could win a participation in arthousecoop's sketchbook project I decided to take the chance and gamble. And I won. The other day I got my sketchbook with the theme Grey side of life (perfect for me). Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be a part of the project - so what are you waiting for?
In 2008 I participated in another of Art House Co-op's projects: the scavenger project.

|While waiting for the watercolour to dry I've been unwrapping and checking my little concrete samples in the studio. Now they've hardened enough and can be let to dry. |
I was a bit worried when turning my "cake form" over to get the simplified Snow White out. But it went without any problem! I had made an experiment mixing concrete with different pigments for a painterly effect. It worked on one side only. So it was no big deal I got that crack... The good thing is that I can reuse my form as planned for trying out variations.

This morning when I came to my studio it was bathing in light (good thing I painted the floor white) and I knew exactly what to do. I have a feeling this is going to be a great autumn.
