Arts and Words

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

If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe.” – Nikola Tesla


He was walking around a block repeatedly for three times before entering a building, he would clean his plates with 18 napkins, he lived in hotel rooms only with a number devisable by 3. He would make calculations about things in his immediate environment to make sure the result is devisable by 3 and base his choices upon the results. He would do everything in sets of 3.

Some say he had OCD, some say he was very superstitious.

However, the truth is a lot deeper.

A bit of a journey

Sometimes one gets pretty scared. A trip to the ambulance last Friday, today I made a visit to the health center. Tomorrow I will get the answers of the l blood test results.
Feel gratitude at how well the health care system works


The red against the icy cold

The Swedish winter came yesterday to where I live with a temperature below minus -10 Celsius. Beautiful formations of ice met me early in the morning. The red against the icy cold, fire and ice. I tested different angles and settings to capture the beauty.

These images were also the last shooting with my old iPhone, a miracle that it worked to take photos with it because it is broken. Today’s technology wonders has undeniably short life.

Yesterday I received a package in the mail also with my new mobile. It will be exciting to test its camera .

Well, maybe that’s what I needs to so that I resume shooting again. 2016 is the year I took less pictures of at least several years. My system camera, last time I used it was when I was at the workshop in Greece early last year.  Yes, might is the time to start with photo again..

From Spring to Autumn



Today it was a little colder than yesterday. It looked almost as if nature shifted, from on day to another, from Spring to Autumn. Still, it feels odd to shoot with my Iphone.

When the winter darkness came, I spent the rest of the day taking down the Christmas Season.

Time is out of joint


It was with a strange feeling to take a walk today. It felt like it was Spring in the air, far from Winter.

Time is out of joint, one can write like this in English? Google translate wrote yes.:)

In this up side down inverted weather, back from the walk, I took the change to make some gardening.

Later in the evening I spent one hour painting.

It was a tranquil and relaxing  way to celebrate the first day of the new year.



To paint provides a sense of calm in the present.


It has been a year that I thought I did  only a little bit but when I summarizes the results I’ve done a lot.

There has not been much blogging, actually, I took a long deliberate break from blogging. Sometimes we all need that. Take long pauses when the word runs out.

It has been a year of much work, not so much time for create illustrations, but I’ve had taken the time to paint on canvas. To illustrate in the mixed media I master it very well, but I challenged to learn new way to express.
The new year 2017, I will both paint and illustrate, take it easy I also intend to do. More creativity and less thought and start exhibit a little bit more. I have some ideas I want to complete.

This is a recently started painting, this is the beginning of blogging again.

Today is the last day of the year. An new year shall give birth tonight at midnight.
I wish you all a dignified end of 2016 and a creative and peaceful 2017.

See you then

Happy New Year!

To all of you, around the world, I wish you
a peaceful happy end to the year and an amazing creative 2016.
Thank you for all comments and support during this year.

Let us not forget those who can not celebrate this New Year Eve, because of escape of war or because of other reasons.

Let us hope that peace comes 2016 and people can united with their loved ones.

Happy New year from me to you.


The reader


The Reader near the lake.

The other day I was in Hjo, the neighboring town. I took a walk with my camera. It was a long time since I took these photo walks.

I have given me a promise that next year I will try to resume these photo walks but also painting more focused. This year has been so busy with so much else that I had to do that I have not had time for half of what I would have wanted to do.
But everything has it’s perfect time….
