just checking that my studio is still there ...

Today I biked to the studio to water my plants and check that my studio is still there. And of course it was! I also checked my ongoing project that I just left in the middle when I travelled to Colombia - and it actually looked as promising as I remembered. Sometimes you return to see it wasn't as good as you thought - but not this time!

But art will have to wait for now - I'm still spending my days at home planning the year, but above all preparing my Art as Business Course for Camp Pikaland. I'm aiming to make this course into something that can help artists or illustrators getting an overall structure to everything that has to be done, to help them prioritize, evaluate and plan. And really see it through and reach their goals... I don't want to make a course that is just a list of everything you could and should do. 

The class starts the 7th of February, but you can also sign up later as it is a self-study class.

ah, with this post you actually soothed my nervous soul. the first month is almost over and I did "nothing" but planning and sorting out. I know, it is important, but still it does make me uncomfortable ones in a while.

Vilket mysigt rum, dit skulle jag gärna titta in, bjuder du på kaffe?

Annton Beate; yes, I agree - it is so easy to feel like you aren't really doing anything real when you do that sorting out and planning. But as we both know it's essential to get things done in the end!

Marie-Louise: du är så välkommen på kaffe i min ateljé om du har vägarna förbi!

As promised as recalled, yes, that is a very good feeling... I am glad for you.

(Popping up from long absence, it feels. In studio day and night and loving it. Though tiring, it is good this feeling of focus and intensity.)
