Arts and Words

I am an artist and poet. This blog is about my artist life. Follow me on my journey.

Following the right path

amI was so overwhelmed with joy and gratitude yesterday that I could not fall asleep. Creative thoughts twisted like carousel in my mind and gratitude rinsed like waves in my heart. Sleep? Well, I managed to sleep a few hours in the morning.

I’m lucky I’m not working tonight. 🙂

After lunch I’m going up to the to pick up some Advent light for my studio.

“Your mind knows only some things. Your inner voice, your instinct, knows everything. If you listen to what you know instinctively, it will always lead you down the right path.”

I got my own studio!

aaI got my own studio! From next year I have my own studio. I feel grateful and touched, I will always be my landlords forever grateful. I can not believe that soon I can start painting again, create again. Oh so I have missed to create

!
My thoughts are spinning of everything I can do and I’m lucky I’m free from work a few nights so I can land.

I have several illustrations waiting and I have several manuscripts that have been waiting for my attention .  It is my promise for the new year. To give everything that has been waiting for me, to give it time.  . My brushes and colors are currently in the attic, waiting for my next move. Soon I can start paint again in my own studio.

I feels gratetude and happiness for what life have given me in art and….yes…. in patience…. and to not forget,  in knowledge.

I was so nearly to give up….

In the list

Another day I went to  cut my long hair, it was one of the things I had written in my list of things I should do.  In my new life, I’ll go and cut my hair. 🙂

I know, that sounds crazy, maybe typically female`? But I felt like a new person when I left the hairdresser.


But from one thing to another, a much more important thing in my list. I need a studio.

Today, soon, from one hour from now,
I will go to a meeting   and we shall  talk about the possibly  of hiring a studio.

A new start.

Finally, a new life. A new start. My Life. My freedom.
A few words that can describe a large part of my wishes that have come true.

Now I have moved to my own home and left behind me all the old and I have left behind me more than the house.

I feel grateful. You know, freedom taste a bit salty.

These last two months have been very intense, a huge mix of packing up on days and working at nights. But now, before the end of November 2017, I can sit and rest my soul to the song of the fire.

Did I need to say that I love the little house that I have been lucky enough to rent and move to.?

My new life has begun.

I’m very proud to be able to participate with some of my illustrations in New York. I would have loved to be in place as an artist but unfortunately Sweden is so far away from the center of events in USA.

Have you missed me?

If somebody has missed me and wondered where I have gone as I being so quiet, I just want to say that I have had a lot to do with house sales.

The house I live, where I have taken care of, built up an artist garden, will be sold.

An ambulance, ECG and an worried daughter and cousin make me realize it’s time to let go. To take care of someone’s house alone is too big to bear alone. So, the house is out for sale.

Who wants a garden of roses?

While I have a lot to do here in Sweden, some of my illustrations is in New York from today.

Se my next post 🙂

Art and Time

Sometimes you have to seize the time and give us time to pursue what is supposed to be instead of rushing blindly but to pause and reflect.
I have taken a few steps back to catch my breath before I go on to the next goal.

Who knows, maybe I’ll withdraw these and other illustrations when the right time comes.

Shoes. Shoes. Shoes.

shoes

I am  inspired.  Karlsborgs photoclub, whose theme for yesterdays meeting  was to photograph shoes.
I was not there, unfortunately,  but a picture I took on  shoes today. A little blurry, I have a penchant for the blurry  as a contrasting with all the sharpness. 🙂

Burned-out fall

aaP6070310Now I have got all the results from the blood test I have taken. I know that many of you have been concerned about my health. I thank you and I was touched by your thoughtfulness. Do not worry, everything looked ok.

What happened may have been a combination of that I’ve had some reduced strength after the flu that I’ve been with for about four weeks, plus some other things that happened. that threw me back several years back in time.

I know I have many here who have gone through a similar journey in terms of burnout.

We may have had different trips and reasons why we suddenly crashed. These words is directed from me to you.

Find the source of why. Start from there. Believe me, you have more power and strength than you can even imagine. Believe me, I know! Those who burn out are the strongest and we have fallen and fallen and fallen several times but always   lift us off the ground over and over again until the day came where we could no longer stand up. But it is possible to come back . Start with to give you time to feel who you are, search the source of the pain, do something about it, change direction of your life and make the changes that´s needed.

It may take time, it may take years, but it is possible. While that sometimes it will happens whats happened to me last Friday, something triggers a real event, but remember this: you have gone through purgatory so many times and you have been strengthened by it. Also keep in mind that if you has been burned out so there will always be the “burning out” latent in the dark, but do not let it take over the light in you.

Breathe deeply, focus, lift up your chin and say to yourself: I can. I’m ready. I know my strength and what I can achieve.

I forgot one very important thing.
Be aware that now and then you will fall sometimes. I had forgotten it and it left its mark this weekend but hopefully I have it in mind the next time this happen.’

If you are aware about it, your consciousness will take the most of its pain before you hit the ground , and eventually you will barely feel later of these burned-out fall.

Don’t forget to be human, feel both joy and sorrow. You’re not a robot. Feel the life.

Hugs to you. You who know what I’m talking about.
