It looks like summer has arrived early to Malmö this year! I just checked the water temperatures, and right now it’s between 11-14 degrees Celsius in the sea, meaning I could go windsurfing in a few weeks! Makes me so happy! I love windsurfing, it clears my head and I get plenty of fresh air and exercise at the same time. The images above are from my backyard, which is absolutely lovely this time a year! Flowers and shizzle everywhere, perfect for late night grill parties or just sitting in the sun and reading articles or books.
I haven’t really had the time to draw or paint the last weeks, but I’ve been thinking a lot about WHY, WHERE and WHEN instead, when it comes to art. Last weekend I made a trip to the botanical garden and just watched all the flowers and the trees. When I found an amazing crooked old tree my first though was “damn, I should have brought my sketch book with me!”. I would have loved to paint all the trees. I fricking love trees and crocked branches! And I’m still snapping reference photos of beautiful skies and color combos whenever I find them. I just haven’t had the time to put pen to paper, but I’m not stressed about it. It feels like my Art Project is still going strong, but it has entered another phase. My first year of the Art Project was all about learning the basics of how to use Photoshop and my Wacom. To grind, grind and grind. This year has been about WHY do I draw, and what’s important to me, what motivates me to keep on creating. Something deeper. It has also been the phase in which I have found others to talk art with, and that’s awesome!
