Crazy work

Some times you end up doing rather crazy things while working. Like printing small dots one by one. I started this printing process in the summer. Then I had to put it away. Some days ago I wanted to continue, because these dots never stop fascinating me.  The dots play with my eyes. And I like it. My eyes are blending the color, yellow and blue turns to green. Old wisdom, new ways to play while working. Monotypes, of course.

Imagine. The night. You wake up. Everything might happen. Your bed start to be alive. A deer is eating grass in a corner of your bedroom. Maybe your cat is talking to you. And you can understand your cat completely. A night like this is a night for adventures.

These drypoints are small, about 6 x 8 cm. They are the beginning of a new suite of print, with Eros as the key role.

A tree in the forest

I often start my drawing with an idea in my mind. Something I really want to do. Like to make a drawing of an old tree. Often my hands end up changing the idea. The Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago have a wonderful story in one of his books where he tell a tale of an artist and how his hands has a brain of its own. I feel related to this story. My hands has their own stories. When I start working, it is like going on a journey. The ocean has streams the boat follows. Maybe you caught a fish more marvellous than you could imagine. Like in the «Finn Family Moomintroll» of Tove Jansson where they caugt a huge fish. Larger than the boat.

I like being a tree watcher. They are all different.

It must be something about childhood. There are angels everywhere. I think something more is going to happen in this print.  I have to think about it.

A café with one of my monotypes on the wall. I love the Bialetti. It is like a tiny cathedral.
