Arts and Words

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


April 2014

I trained on muscle soreness.

Today I halved an old lilac tree.
I used an old saw and wish I had a electric saw. It was heavy but as consolation, Lilac tree has soft wood.
Of its crooked branches, I made this trellis to my sweet peas.
and this one too to my sweet peas
The lower trellis is too low growing beans

There was an art to piece the branches together but as I love to create art so I enjoyed every second. I was happy with the results and yes, oh yes, my body got the dose of extra muscle soreness too 🙂

Garden angel

Angels protect me and my flowers and keeps an eye on what I’m doing. 🙂

Heart leaf Bergenia

Today I spent the day with replanting. I had one heart leaf Bergenias who had grown enormous in one corner of the garden., I shared and planted along one side of the house. Tomorrow I shall replant some Funkias between. I take what I have in the garden and replant it. Very cheap way to make a garden 🙂 I might plant a wild clematis next to the wall, nearly the climbing rose.


The flowerbed along the hedge, well I take away the weeds and then I mixed in the soil the compost.

I will sleep well tonight.

A perfect gardening day

Lemon balm in the sun:)

It was a perfect gardening day. I spent the whole day in the garden. Now I begin to see the results of all hard working . It will look nice when everything blooms.

But oh, how I’m tired now. A cup of herbal tea from my own herb garden and then time for me to go to bed.

Fuschian blossoms catching up with the sun.



A glorious day it is today. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and I will soon go out to the garden.

Before I start gardening, I’ll take out my tomato and chilli seedlings and then sort of the vegetable seeds to be put in the vegetable beds.. Thereafter, the rose bushes is to be pruned.

But first a cup of coffee in the sun.
Have a nice day to you.

Easter, flowers and gardening


Today I spent the whole day in the garden with garden chores. I completed what I started yesterday.
I am about to go to bed, tired and I want to wake up refreshed tomorrow then I’ll continue with what I started today.

This is what my kitchen table looks out now. Tomato plants and chilli and various other vegetables in the queue to get out. Still too early that they may be out overnight, so is just for me to take them out and take them in.


Side by side. Daffodils and Amaryllis.


The first thing I did in the morning was this. I picked a bouquet of daffodils from my garden, they brighten up my kitchen.

Happy Easter to you.

The birdhouses



This makes me happy. The bird houses I’ve done is now inhabited. It was a great Easter surprise. 🙂


Gabriel García Márquez

So sad, I am a huge fan of him. May he rest in peace.

The Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez, who unleashed the worldwide boom in Spanish literature with his novel 100 Years of Solitude, has died at the age of 87…

Arts and Anemone


Today I basically slept away the whole day. I can not believe that is almost six o clock . In 3 hours , it’s time to go to work.
I was certainly tired.

I had thought sow dahlia seeds but I think I will continue to rest. So I half-lying on my bed and blogs and browsing and searching information about a journey .

My next involvement in an art fair will be in June in Tehran, Iran. I got the information from the gallery yesterday about the event . So exiting. The second art fair for me this year. The exhibition in Vienna is still ongoing. Those event, it’s gave me back the inspiration to start paint again and to not give up. I am so grateful , now i only need time to create and colors and canvas to paint .

I’m thinking how i should make it to travel to Iran.
If I’m in the VIP & Press preview the 25th and the first day of the exhibition , then a day of rest before I go back to Sweden . Uh , it will be tough but I think it ‘s the best alternative. The trip to Iran will take about 11 hours . 3 days hotel . Hm , yes it ‘s the best way . Of course I would love to see the city too but maybe I can travel back one day . I have to be realistic and I really hope I don’t work those days because If I do, I have to take days off for the trip. Still I don’t have the schedule for the summer.

The VISA to Iran takes about five weeks to fix. I have to renew my passport . Best to be there in time . When I get my salary , I begin with the visa and passports . End of May I book the ticket.

This time I will not spend time and energy to seek travel grants and sponsorship from artist grants. It’s always make me so tired. Previously tried has resulted in zero and I realize That it ‘s just throwing away sometime I have not . Best to go my own way . And it’s more abroad the interest of what I create is , not where I live . The classic for artists. You are never a prophet in your own country.

I think it will go , it must go .
Next trip . Iran.
Exiting . 🙂

Now time to start the evening . I will not be as tired as yesterday night , That for sure . At least not so sleepy ….
