Just ordered the empty post cards for this years Postales desde el Limbo. I think it is my fourth time participating in this charity event. By selling donated postcards designed by artists, designers, web designers etc, Postales desde el Limbo collect money for a "Solidarity Centre" in Zaragoza.
Going on vacation in a few days and hopefully the inspiration will flow and I will come up with some great ideas that will sell well (yes, the only time when I'm concerned about getting things sold haha).
One breast bigger than the other, one hip higher than the other. In other words, just as it should be.
Last year the chairman of the art association in my town past away. Peter Westerdahl was a real art lover and his walls at home were covered with paintings from the floor to the ceiling. This weekend his family had a vernissage in his home to show and sell some of the art pieces from his collection. It was a very special feeling to step inside his house and he was most certainly a man of great taste, may he rest in peace <3
I happened to find a lithograph I really liked and now it lives with me instead. The artist, Vera Nilsson, is very special to me; I've seen her work at Moderna Museet in Stockholm and she is famous for her oil paintings of children. I was immediately drawn to them (you might understand why looking at the one below). Not only do I love her art, I think she is a very good role model for other female painters. For example, she was the first woman to become a member of Konstakademin (The Art Academy in Sweden) in the 20th century.

Vera was a strong woman, an expressionist and she wasn't afraid to use color. The lithograph I bought looks like this and there is certainly nothing dull about it. I will get a new passepartout for it, but since that little blue figure was begging me to place him on the wall immediately, I just had to find a spot the first thing I did when I came home.
