New art: Letting go & Sisters by Nature + glimpses from an exhibition in Pakhuset, Klintholm Havn
I have been painting a lot lately. And facebooking a lot. And also Instagramming. And of course sending out my newsletter with shop offers and free printable and stuff. (Subscribe here if you like!). I have not been blogging much though… a bit too many balls perhaps!
But today I am eager to share two new paintings with you. They kind of appeared as twin-paintings, as you can see above.
The first one is about letting go and recognizing your own garden of love. The second is about that natural bond there is between girls, woman, ladies:
“Letting go”, acrylic and paper on deep edge canvas, 60 x 80 cm. – 4.800 kr. / 24 x 32 in, 690 $
This one comes with a small text:
“Let your hair down and allow the wind to flutter through your soul. Release the birds. Dare for a while to doubt and loosen your grip. Let whatever you kept bound in fear, fly freely.
And see, you stand on a fertile ground of love. It was given to you at birth and you can never lose it. Every time you love, forgive, release or look at another with honest, clear eyes, it becomes richer and greener. Water it frequently. And above all: enjoy it! And smile at all the birds you love when they come to refresh themselves in your garden, again and again.”
“Sisters by Nature”, acrylic and paper on deep edge canvas, 60 x 80 cm. – 4.800 kr. / 24 x 32 in, 690 $
The second painting is about that special bond that can be between ladies, woman, girls. A sense of natural connection and understanding that is so special, and, to most ladies, so, so important. I kind of really like how they turned out, plus I personally like the light and green colors a lot.
They are both part of a local exhibition rigth now in Pakhuset, Klintholm Havn on Møn here in Denmark. That is a very charming place. We had the opening last sunday complete with all the 25 artists and over 200 guests, live music, pizza from the local pizzaria (which happens to be the best in the area) and of course drinks and lost of smiles and chats. I love those kind of happenings! Here is a peak into my little booth there, it´s almost a small shop complete with cards, posters, cups and Calendar. And, of course the paintings. If you are nearby I recommend a visit to Pakhuset, this old 3 store building filled with art!
I love how in every booth you get a glimpse of the next; this way the arts and crafts blend and compliment each other very well!
Gotta say, I am actually very happy with the cups! They are really beautifully made with a fine shining finish – in our home they are a clear favorite, and they make a wonderful gift with joyful, uplifting images.
You can really sense how old and raw the building are – that´s also why it´s only used from may to september; it´s too cold in the winter but very charming during summer time. A big bonus is that this part of Møn is very well visited because of the many tourists coming to enjoy the special Møn´s Klint, the beautiful white cliffs.
Till soon, and take much care,
