Recently I got on the local train for a little adventure. The trip went to Brusand, not that far away, but it still got me into that travelling space where your mind can go anywhere.. A good starting point for where I was heading; to a small gallery run by an artist couple (Jan Kjetil Bjørheim and Elizabeth Croft)- both the gallery and their home is the old train station in Brusand. It was charming and I felt very welcome, as well as it felt good to chat with "colleagues" again. Alongside running the gallery they do workshops for both artists and ... well, everyone! They are Nordisk Kunst Plattform. Oh, and the exhibition? This time they were showing etchings by Roberta Cummings; a selection of quirky and maybe dark, yet humorous observations of stuffed animals. I thought they were perfectly fitting into the atmostphere of the old station. Have a look!
I miss having a dog, and was reminded of this when I took a walk on the beach recently. I met this big hairy creature above along with a briard (even more hairy!), which both came running towards me for a cuddle. Just what I needed! So obviously I was inspired when I got back to the studio to do some doggy doodles. Here are some of them:
I work as a freelance Illustrator from my studio and home surrounded by trees and with the company of Isla the deerhound. This is my blog where I want to share my inspiration and work with you. However you entered this blog, I hope you find something that ecxite you. I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a comment about the weather. I wish you a fine day.
