So thankful for the sun, kind of, coming back. It warms our minds in the most brilliant way:)
Michaela Ortis stays at the residecny for some more days and enjoys skiing and writing in a nice mix. I enjoy school-holiday to catch up, for example, with this web-site – at least a bit… Wish you all a lovely winter-spring-time with lots of outdoor experience and hot chocolate!
Så här i Corona pandemins oroliga tider vill jag fråga er hur ni tacklar denna utmaning? Målar och tecknar ni mer än vanligt? Skriver ni mer musik och poesi än vanligt? Tar ni mer foton än någonsin och var?
Eftersom vi har så svårt att träffas fysiskt så vill jag uppmana er att skicka bilder på ert vårliga skapande just nu. Skicka en bild på ert skapande och inspirera varandra till än mer skapande! Genom detta sprider vi entusiasm över de möjligheter som faktiskt finns. Hjälps åt att sprida positiva vibrationer runt vår planet!
Skicka till firstname.lastname@example.org under ”vårlig kreativitet” och namn, så lägger jag upp bilderna på denna hemsida!
In these Corona pandemic worrying times I would like to ask you how you tackle this challenge? Do you draw and paint more than usual? Do you write more music and poetry? Do you take more photos than usual and where?
Due to our difficulties to meet physically I would like to encourage you to send picture of your spring-creativity right now. Let’s go viral and send me a picture of your creativity and help inspire others to more creativity! Let us spread enthusiasm over all the possibilities to see, listen and create that we actually have . Help spreading positive vibrations around our planet!
Send your images to email@example.com, note your mail with ”spring-creativity” name and country, and I will present your image on this web page.
Today the sun is shining, reflecting beautifully in the snow. Cold in the morning, but I look forward to midday when temperature becomes nicer and I can go out skiing. What a privilege!
I also really long for some studio-time. Painting, sculpting, creating with my hands while listening to music. Bu also more of dancing, eating good and tasty food together with friends and beloved ones, enjoying nature, rest and peace without stress.
How do we reach this point every second of our lives? The point where total balance rules?
Why wait until we have strived so hard and harsh that we burst into tears and cannot see the tiny magic things that happens to us? We cannot stay happy and content because we think we are not good enough?
Today is our day and if we have the possibility to experience and live tiny miracles and magics, let’s do it!
Kind and warm regards from the studio in Västra Örträsk, South of Lapland, Sweden.
After a long period of cold weather, today, springa was in the air. Not only did the sun shine, no wind, no -30 degrees, the birds lived up again and life felt much better in an instant.
I have started decorating, an old door will soon have its function as headboard in one of the rooms. A lot of old paint went off because of my sanding machine. It will be a good board when ready.
Today we had the spring opening of our porch with hot chocolate and sandwiches, awesome is the word for the feeling and taste:)
A new week coming up, I hope my cold will be gone by tomorrow and I will have a fresh new start. Have a nice week everyone:)/until later A-M
Dear all! Winter is here. Nurrul Shaik, artist from Singapore has finished her period at the residence and I wish her the best at her continuing journey. She makes most important work I hope to show you all, soon.
Christmas markets are wonderful places to meet amazing people who creates wonderful handicraft and art. The public is positive and brings joy to these events. Even though the temperature has been too many degrees below zero, they are still well worth visiting and connects people.
Our December guest artist, Nurrul Shaik, from Singapore has left to eventually return back to her home. There were amazing days getting to know a new artist and a new culture and I look forward to show you all her artistry. She is working with important issues, I’ll come back to this later.
Christmas markets have become common again and they are really welcoming to anyone visiting the, even though it has been cold, the warmth shared at this events are indisputable. It is great joy to be part pf a market with positive public, amazing handicraftsmen and beautiful art and home-made Christmas lemonade and more.
Enjoy December and don’t hesitate to get in touch when you need a place to go to for reflection, work or inspiration.
Karin Renklints finstämda tolkningar av visor och sånger ramades in, denna underbart varma och sköna lördagskväll, av ljumma sommarvindar. Vi åhörare fick även njuta av Wilhelm Peterson Bergers ”Sommarsång” tolkad av Karin på pianot. Karin delade även med sig av sin personliga bakgrund till sitt musikliv, hur många som betytt mycket för henne och hur gärna hon vill och även känner ett ansvar att föra musiken och sin gåva att sjunga och spela, vidare. Alla fick även stämma in i sommarpsalmen ”Den blomstertid nu kommer” vilken alltid framkallar känslan av analkande sommarledighet.
Vi tackar för den värmande sången och hälsar Karin varm välkommen tillbaka.
