This year's shows

I am picking paintings from this stack for my next exhibition. After a break from art shows I’m back with three of them this year: March 16th – April 13th with Nordic Wildlife Art at Galleri Svanen, Närke; June 28th – August 2nd also with Nordic Wildlife Art at Eriksberg, Blekinge; and August 24th – September 23rd at Falsterbo Konsthall, Skåne. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you there!

Their own make

The pupils' homemade paints are ready to use, which we did last Thursday. The kids were amazed how easy it was to make good quality paints from honey, gum arabic, water, and a few well-chosen pigments.
