Earlier on this summer I wrote about creative summer space. Enjoying the present, finding creative time and space in unexpected places. Beautiful, creative space that sometimes doesn’t cost anything. Here are some of the highlights from my summer.
This summer I've been inspired by:
- An exhibition of Björn Wessmans colourist landscape challenges on canvases on a monumental scale. At Millesgården which is an experience in itself!
- Balcony gardening.
- Connecting with new and old friends.
- Making homemade pesto and baking grape and rosemary Focaccia.
- A retrospective exhibition of Slas, Stig Claesson (1928–2008), one of Sweden’s most loved authors and artists. At Kulturhuset.
- Taking time offline and quitting Facebook.
- Reading: The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman, Juliet Naked by Nick Hornby, Medicinen by Hans Koppel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and Macbeth by William Shakespeare.
- Swimming in lake Mälaren. Going for picnics and walks.
- The outdoor film festival at Rålis.
- A boat trip to Drottningholm Palace and the Chinese Pavilion.
- Taking a painting course at Gerlesborgsskolan in Bohuslän.
