summer: light

summer: green

So far I've had a wonderful time off enjoying - among other things -  the best of summer Sweden. And just worked a few hours, trying to keep it to a minimum barely checking my mail. (Upper right corner: art piece by Per Agelii at Trädgårdsföreningen)

Time for vacation!

Today was my last working day before summer vacation. Normally I try to take four weeks off in a row, but this year will be an exception. I will have to go back working on my commissions (one in the execution phase, the other in the sketching phase) in the middle of summer to keep things going. So I left my studio well organized to be able to just pick up the work again on a rainy summer day (the sunny summer days are not for working!).

through someone else's lens

Yesterday I had photographer Annika Broman visiting my studio. It's always interesting to see what someone else notices about your studio. She both took photos of the same things I have taken photos of - and of stuff I haven't photographed at all.

no studio today either

Yesterday I was a little over-optimistic; I couldn't go to the studio today either - I had to fix with some files for the form cutting (I do all computer work at home) ... 

Very often I wish I could have a competent assistant to delegate to ... like artists do in countries where there is more money in art!

sketching and project leading

Last week I got confirmed the actual place for the art piece I'll suggest for the preschool. I managed to get just the spot I wanted! This time I'll go for something more sculptural - which is something I've for some time hoped to get the chance to do. I have already the idea (I've been thinking about this since the end of April..) and I must say I'm very excited about this project! 

The other commission I'm working on - this one - is now in the execution phase. Which doesn't just mean hands-on - today was just meetings and phone calls ... But tomorrow I'll be in my studio avoiding all what meetings and e-mails imply!
