Just a little bit of October fun…

It all happens at Hunters point shipyard (naval shipyard) in San Francisco, follow the driving directions to 451 Galvez Ave, SF 94124.

I would love to see you and show you my new work! It’s fun and I am really enjoying creating these new pieces. I am here between 11am and 6pm both Sat and Sun, or PM me to set up an appointment with a smaller group.
Thanks and see you soon! ūüôā

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

I drove up north to visit friends in Santa Rosa over the weekend and stoped by Sugarloaf Ridge State Park for a hike. It’s gorgeous up here with choices of hikes past waterfalls or to walk up the mountain.
Obviously there was no water in the falls this time of the year.. but I can imagine how beautiful it is during early spring. This time I chose to hike up the Bald Mountain walking through fire ravaged landscape with surviving trees.
When I finally made it to the top I found the 360ňö view spectacular and as you can see on the photograph below.. at the horizon you can see as far as to San Francisco. An amazing hike and a wonderful state park to visit.

During the weekend we also have an art auction that will benefit the people from Ukraine.
Come and support the good cause.
The organizers are: Nova Ukraine, MesArt, STAR and Gooddler.

Wow.. it is already December!

..and on the news they say it is snowing in my old hometown in Sweden. Brrrr, cold!, and how beautiful at the same time.
I feel lucky to live in sunny San Francisco, California where it’s not too warm or too cold. This is what we call “lagom” (perfectly in between) in Swedish.

Traditionally I serve “gl√∂gg” (mulled wine) during our HOLIDAY PARTY AND ART SHOW, sadly this year due to Covid we will not have any food inside. This tradition will have to wait until next year.

Though!, we are still having our Holiday Party and it is happening this Sunday, December 5th. PLEASE, come and visit us, show your support and have fun. There are art for sale, great ideas for gifts, food vendor and live music.

Traveling and finding a way back to myself.

I’m super excited to see these photographs being printed and framed! Some of them you will find framed at my open studio (October 23 & 24, 2021) this year, others you can order at my online store later in December.

Last fall I decided to go on a road trip and follow the coast line south California. I camped along the road at campsites that were still open… (remember, we where in this awful shutdown due to Covid-19. Hopefully, we are now on our way out of this epidemic).
It was a truly amazing journey, and exactly what I needed!
I visited national parks, sat at the beach and hiked mountains. I had a longing to be fully immersed in nature, to reconnect with myself, away from the city. I felt my creative juices started moving and began photographing landscapes that past by as scenery; a new portfolio of work has been born.

Below are 3 photographs that I shot during the trip and edited on the spot. They were all photographed in the mountains of Cerro Alto, California, where it is quiet at night and incredibly beautiful.



What do to this coming weekend…?

Stop by my Studio, I will have my doors Open this Weekend, October 14 & 15 between 11-6pm.
I’ll have new work up on the walls. ūüôā ..and if you missed my art reception in August then this is a good opportunity to check out my new series of work: Landscape of Portraiture.
