Learning something new: making spoons

Diogo is a very skilled guitar builder who works with European woods- so lots of experience with wood, something I don't know much about, but one can always learn from the masters, right? By a warm campfire by the lake, Diogo showed me step by step how to get started- and...

Inside my sketchbook

It's been a while since I posted my sketches. Some days I forget, but now it's also been a while since new ones found their way to the good old sketchbook. With the light returning to Sweden since hm...

Wednesday Wanderings (17)

Under a blue sky, the water levels are rising everywhere around us. Snow and ice from a long and cold winter melts into creeks and rivers, all the way back to the lakes. We keep a close watch on the lake as ducks can now swim where once our garden started. It...

Not all there is to know, we can see.

There is an emptiness, a void, that has to be filled with the wild air that wanders from the mountains back to the sea. We watch but don't see what we don't know. We watch the objects but fail to see time floating by. We can't see what we're not...

Wednesday Wanderings (08)

I'll admit, I am obsessed with ice and its textures, so I just post all the photographs I took at this little waterfall :-)  -- don't say I didn't warn you! You can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook....

Wednesday Wanderings (07)

After weeks without sunlight, our black and white world was suddenly an attractive explosion of the most beautiful colors. Hellow blues and oranges and hints of pink! We made some raisin bread sandwiches (delicious bread by Brödladan, the best bakery in our area- and they are Belgian) boiled some water for...
