flow into silence

For now the snow and the cold are gone... I don't like that because we get rain instead. I like the world when she is white and everything has to slow down a bit. I would like to live Norway, or Sweden. I have this "thing" for those country's but I'm not sure if I would still like it if there is snow and cold for more as 6 months. This drawing is a bit of a "goodbye-winter" (it can of course still come back!), even if it's not very winterly, but for me they are slowly walking away...very quiet.

me, myself and Mr. Nilsson

I don't know if you remember this painting, I made this one before I started to make the big drawings. This one is from 2011. This painting is my submission for a open call for an exhibition about self-portraits. The intention for this competion is to start a discussion about art. The organisation will take a closer look to the art-works of those people who have a discussion going on about their work. These works will make it to the exhibition... So if you feel like it or have any questions about this work or just want to tell what you see in this work, click here! You will see my entry and below you can spread your mind. Of course you can do this to any other art work you like on this site.

And if you have any energy left, you can also leave a comment here ;-)
I wish you all a good weekend and thank you for your support anyway, just by reading this blog!

snow slips under the door

With this blog-post I just want to let you know that I love snow! And that's all... The pictures above are all taken in our garden and off course is that my rabbit Pollock, he doesn't mind the snow. The only thing he doesn't like about it is that he can't eat any grass, so he tries to dig the snow away;-) The picture below is taken during a walk, near our village you can find a black scottish highlandcattle and this one came very close!

drawing challenge

This weeks host for the drawing challenge is Stefanie and her theme is "crown" (check out her blog, her crown is wonderful!).
I made this drawing of a little girl, all dressed in pink with an also pink crown. Little girls and pink....prinsesses....all you see and hear in the media for girls is pink that that your little girl IS a princess. Now I don't mean this in a bad way, because off course your child is everything to you, but isn't it getting a little bit overboard? There are much more things girls can be and I think it's important that they know that. Please let more girls become strong princesses and not only dressed in pink!
For more crowns, please take a look at Stefanie's blog.

This is a sketch of my mum and me. I drew it when we came back of a holiday in Finland in 2006. We went swimming and had so much fun with a underwatercamera and diving goggles. The sketch isn't very good but everytime I see it it makes me smile, because of the silly stuff we did. Today it's 5 years ago that she past away and I'm glad that I made this weird sketch of us.

disappearing into bubbles

While surching on my computer for a drawing I needed I found some images of my older paintings. This one is from 2004 and perfect to wish you a very nice weekend! ;-)

(thank you for the helpfull comments on my last post, I'm still thinking about it, if I know what to do I'll let you know. Some of you said that I should signe the plates: they are, but on the back).

and now what?

I finished number 3 of a white plate with a red girl. And now I'm thinking about what to do with them. With all the crockery I made in the last few months, continue or not.... You can find all the plates I made on the right site of this blog: labels: crockery. Well, I have to think about it for a while....

a new beginning...with good news!

In my first post of 2013 I can spread the news that Atelier Spunk's webshop is finally open! My plan was to go online two weeks before christmas, but that was a bit to optimistic... With starting problems and making the pieces and illustrations. There are now 9 rings and 5 necklaces available. If you want to have a look, click here or visit the facebook page.

And there was some other nice news which I got just before christmas: my other blog about food made it to the top 50 list of best FoodBlogs of 2012 by JustEat. I only started 4 months ago so this is nice to hear even if my blog entered the list at number 35.

I hope you all had a good start in this new year and I wish you all the best! Let's see what this year will bring!
