A photo walk in November



Yesterday I took a drive to search for November frost. I found it in Beatenberg near a beautiful church.
Not that I miss the frost, yesterday was a radiantly beautiful sunny day. + 4C. It’s hard to imagine that next weekend is the first Sunday of Advent. It’s in the air as it is a mix of autumn and spring. When I got home, I packed up my little music box, the little angel playing harp. An antique small figurine that I found at a Red Cross flea market a few years ago.
Vintage MAPSA Swiss Movement Musical Hand Carved/painted Wooden Angel Play Harpa. (music Brahms Wiegenlied).

Today is more like normal November weather. No sun but no rain either. I’ll take a car ride with my camera a little later in the day. And as I finished with the artwork “Tones of Music”, I will continue with the next one in the serial “Sounds of the Universe”. Those artworks is made for my own walls. 🙂 Those paintings are a little bit different from my illustrations and with much more vivid colors but I feel joy to create contrasts.


Painting tones of music

Tones of music

Were inspired and painted tones of music. Still a lot to paint but now is time to let the painting dry. I hope I can continue paint tomorrow.

Rocks and Sun



Yesterdays photo.
No sun today and no photowalk either. I spent my day making preparations for the next weekend.

A sunny day.




Today was such a radiantly beautiful day. After all these gray November days, the sun was welcome.
I put all have to do aside and took a day off.


Poetry in rush is an artwork I made for some years ago. The illustration fix so well to this story of life.

For not long ago I wrote an blog about a woman, who belongs to those who was burned out, do you remember? She asked me to post a blog about her journey. Burned out in a smooth atmosphere
Today I received a mail from her that made me very very happy.

I move she wrote. I’m moving home.
I’m moving back to my country where I belong.

Her mail made me smile. She sounds so happy.
I have to give her a call.
I love, love, love happy ends. ❤

Car, snow and rain

Yesterday I inspected the car and it went through the check. I have to fix two things in the car, but nothing that costs too much. It rained while I was waiting for my turn.

Today it does not rain, and this is not usual in November. The tractor that plows the fields.
I read that this November in Sweden is one of the grayest November for a very long time. Yes, it shows. I miss the sun by day and the moon at night. The moon that always lit up with its beautiful glow. The gray weather makes me longing for light. I even longing for a little white on the ground. . It seems that the US has got all the snow?

Suddenly happy things start to happen

2015 learns to be a very, very, very exciting year for me. That saying to “never give up, match perfectly!
I feel happy. The art became undeniably my life. And the moonlight, my love.
To be an artist is a journey. 🙂

A smile project

I feel a little bit tired today. The lack of sleep after 3 nights work make me feel a little bit dizzy and I basically get nothing done more than to cook an autumn soup. I want to do so much, it’s also so much to be done, but I can not find the energy enough to start with anything. I’m tired but I still will not complain. Always grateful for those working nights.

So I’m sitting here thinking I should catch up the sleep although it’s too early, or if I should try to to keep me awake for not having to wake up in the middle of the night.
Maybe I should continue with an illustration I started for a while ago, an illustration which I call “The Smile”. It’s an illustration for a cause. It’s a beautiful project called “Connecting the World with a Smile. A” smile “project for children hospitals. I got the information on LinkedIn from the CO Director Marek Wysoczynski.

A smile can change.

I like this song.


And I like this movie too
