Today I was seeing my friend Ingela and her two children, Luna and Mattis… First we was outdoors at the playground close by my home and then we ended up with a fika at café Zenit also in my hoods, I´m s so grateful for all my friends and it always nice to hang around, it gives me energy to work the way I do, first my bread and butter work and then my artistic work, I got energy and new input in my works seeing friends. This is think is an important thing to do, to get along with friends and then going home to my studio and work alone for some hours… underestimate never a fika with friends, it´s a part of the process, one thing lead you to another, things can be clearer when you change focus for awhile.

A soft guy thinking soft thoughts, maybe it could sees as a comment by the society?!
When I look at the internet and all the comments that “people” drop, it´s muse men that doing negative comments in the comment area… Why?! Is it men that can´t speak up in their real life or are they more frustrated or angry then women??? These days we have a debate here in Sweden about näthat/ net hate. It´s a very very hard climate in the internet world, some people that use internet to drop comments that are not housebroken at all, that’s pity I think, internet could be a great place if we all take responsibility and thinking that it is someone in the other end of the line…´
Guys or men sharp up and think and act softly.
This art piece is one in a bigger context that I have done together with the once I work with a t day time at my bread and butter work, if you want to see more or the whole wall of this art project you can visit Biskopsgården and Vårväderstorgets second hand Ebbes Hörna, form January this year it ´s a permanent wall there with this and other nice art pieces.

Maybe spring time for pipe guys?
These two little fellows I got from my college Martin, he had caught them on a walk in our working area in Biskopsgården at Hisingen. I think he talk about some graffiti pipes…
It´s always nice when friends, colleges send me pipe guys that they have catch somewhere on their walk.
Thank you Martin!

Evening drawings at the computer… I like to draw animal, it has always fascinated me and I like to use animal in images and in my jewellery… Now I got some ideas to make t-shirts out of this ”crazy- night-drawings”, so may be that idea will come true…
”I´m sorry ”är titeln på konstnär Karin Jonssons reflekterande verk över konstnärers situation i dagens Sverige. Som visats på centralgalleri i Gävle 12/1 – 16/2 2013.
Kulturens betydelse i samhället minskar…
En studie från Konstnärernas Riksorganisation visar runt 40 procent av svenska konstnärer inte har råd att göra en utställning.
Gratisarbete är mer regel än undantag i branschen.
Hård konkurrans… vi ska vara glad att vi får lov att visa det vi gör…
Kombenatörer, det är det vi är som konstnärer!
”Vi lägger stor vikt vid kulturens art och egenvärde…” Joakim Stymne, statssekreterare hos kulturminister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth. Väldigt talande att Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth ännu en gång inte ger sig i detta utan skickar stadssekreterare.
”Vi har ökat budgeten sedan 2006…” Joakim Stymne.
Kulturella och kreativa näringarna. Att vara kulturskapare är att vara entreprenör! Ett mantra från Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth allt sedan 2006.
Konst = Icke teknisk innovation… what a fuck?!
Konstnärer har (kan komma) kommit i skymundan… Jäpp och hur kommer det sig, kulturpolitik är av vikt!
Först har de (moderaterna - alliansen) tillsatt en utredning på 3 år som kommit med en rapport som blev 5 sidor lång och nu ska de ta ställning till vad det kan göra åt saken… Shit pommes frites, det är utredning på utredning för att slippa komma fram till något av vikt för konstnärer och samhället.

Right now when the cold has hit me and my headache pain me, I longing for the summer…
Last summer was great in many ways, but it was a really cold summer even if the sun shine, it never seems to warm us up as much as we all want and needed.
I did some needle project last summer, I bought nice kettle holder at the flea market for almost no money at all, it´s a shame that this kind of women’s work don´t cost more than a few kronor. I had got two cardigans that I could use for my plan…
Here you can see the result. I´m very proud over the result and I use them as much as I can and I have got a lot of nice comments about them. It´s always nice to show what to do and got appreciation, I´m not so good at sewing but sometimes when I need to do it, I do it… but it´s takes time and it´s not my favorite way of working.
This is for a friend and colleges of me, everything that I do in jewellery way are not always art, this is more a hobby thing that I will give away more as a thought then an art piece…
BUT who decide what is what??? For me this is a hobby piece, not a art piece at all, but how can I separate one piece form another???
For me it´s about quality, time and idea, that’s what separate hobby from art, this piece is a well done piece, but it´s done just for doing something, not a thought of a “bigger” meaning, it´s just to have something to do, nothing more nothing less.

I believe that every day should be a Valentine´s Day… that we everyday should see and feel with our heart, to take care as much as we afford. Today we can take care of all the broken hearts too, I think.
Happy Valentine to all of you!
Don´t let this be a commercial day; I think it´s hard to mixed emotions with commercialism, it´s something cynically about that way to act.
After work fika at Caféva with my friend and college Janina Kurp. A nice evening with a lot of talk about art, how to reach out, to show and have money and time to be a creative person. Janina has done some really nice mobile pieces that she shows at gallery Lerverk in Gothenburg city… I like her process and movement in her new pieces. (Look at some earlier post at the blog).

Once again, the yearly Fettisdagen or in English Shrove Tuesday (also known as Pancake Tuesday and Pancake Day).
I´m not so found of this semla or bun with wiped cream and almond paste, even fastlagsbulle, fettisdagsbulle or, in a version with hot milk hetvägg
