I'm accompanying a family member in an exhibition at Medicinsk Röntgen Eriksborg in Västerås between 4th and 30th October. (Not a real gallery, it's a specialised x-ray clinic run by the regional healthcare system.)

You can look here:… for more information and adress (Swedish only).

:bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletorange: The exhibition is now in full swing until the end of October. Anyone who wants can pay a visit, not just the patients with appointments. :bulletorange::bulletgreen::bulletblue:

* Update - how the day went *

Well… that actually went rather smoothly in the end. I was a bit crestfallen at first, given my mother visited me at work beforehand and telling me all about her plan and how she was going to mount her art. Well done, mother dear, but do I figure into your plan in any way? This is an exhibition for two, isn’t ? Being a bit new to this whole exhibition thing I had prepared a very simple and easy to understand “beginners’ guide” (with pedagogical illustrations!) for her to read through.  Did she read it? Of course not. Why waste energy on reading and actually learing something when it's so much easier to just ask. (Again and again anad again... )

Saturday morning didn’t exactly start off better. I was in a very foul mood all the way to the exhibition place. Once on location I had to give mum yet another lesson on how to think when mounting art onto a wall (which isn’t as easy as you might think. There's a lot to think about). And when I finally got her going on her own it all went a lot better. Not at all coincidentally my mood brightened up. Stuffing my jeans pockets with tools and equipment I must have looked rather ridiculous, but hey… I'm not at work where I have a proper toolbox and I don’t have a tool belt. You use what you have. :D  

While delivering encouraging comments every now and then to my frustrated beginner the exhibition actually started to look like a proper exhibition. All in all, it became a rather successful day, despite being forced to help my lazy mother with the last of her paintings. And despite a lot of the patients walking past us between the waiting room and the x-ray room (which for me is a huge distraction).

And lastly… Sorry about the integrated rant. :ashamed: We are very different people, mum and I, and she really grates on my nerves sometimes.   
  • Mood: Rant
  • Eating: Cheese doodles!
  • Drinking: Hot tea!

I'm a vertically challenged oddball from the (seasonally) frozen North with a slightly mad passion for art...

To create is to live and I live to create, entertaining myself and hopefully a few of you as well. :XD:

This is totally a random thing but I just had to...

Have you ever heard or seen THIS?… 
Warning! Flashing cartoon and neon lights and anime charachters included. Cover your eyes! :XD:

I know it's already a quite "old" thing but that song is SWEDISH and the band is from Sweden. And this song and different dancing anime characters have become a REALLY popular theme (or more likely a meme) in internet. And now it's playing in my head again and again...

What you Swedes will do next? ;)

First off... Are you trying to punish me for something? If I'd like to tortue someone I'd probably choose a song and a video like that. 

It probably is a bit old, yeah, though I have no idea from when. The techno/dance type of music isn't my style so don't come across it very often. Thank the gods for that if people are making stupid tuff like this. :XD:

I'm embarrassed on behalf of my countrymen. :giggle:

Thousand humble pardons for making you to suffer this. :XD:

I have to admit that it has a catching beat.

You have a very good collection of drawings here, not to mention the wonderful blend of colors you put on your paintings. Looking forward to see more from you :)
Loulin Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks. Always happy to hear someone likes my stuff (even the the paintings, as I'm not always that comfortable with colours ;P )  
I'm not the fastest artist there is. Real Life tends to get in the way a lot. But I hope I can continue to deliver really good stuff with future uploads.

Birthday wishes from here too (och klara vappen :XD:)

Vi finnarna kan tala mycket bra svenska, eller hur?  Post Above  ;P :D LOL   
Loulin Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Kiitos, Panu. 

Very good indeed. If only I knew what "klara vappen" meant it'd be even greater :XD:
DeepWoodian Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

"Klara vappen" is not proper Svedish (like you noticed :D) but a "twist" translation used by us Finns.

The origin of the saying comes from "Hyvää Vappua".   ("Ha den bra första maj/Valborg")

From there we twisted it to be "Glada Vappen".   ("Glada Valborg för alla")

And once more to "Klara Vappen".   ("Klara Valborg")

This is a hunorous way to say this wish to somebody as it basically means "Have a sober first of May". :XD:
Hopefully you get something out of my explanations as my Swedish is more than a little rusted.
