Old friends

Saturday, May 13th, 2017


We were in Sunne in Värmland last weekend, where I stumbled upon two cable excavators, seemingly rooted in the grass. They looked like old friends, watching the view over the field together, perhaps talking childhood memories…

We celebrated the new year near Sunne this time, a community in the landscape Värmland in western Sweden. I drove into “town” (not sure you can actually call this a town… but yeah, sort of) to sketch on New Year´s eve, but the rain started pouring down, so I had to sit in the car. I always find it awkward to draw in the car. Even if you move the seat back it is still a very confined space to flip open your sketchbook in, and spread out your favorite drawing tools. There is always something in the way, steering wheel, door handles, gear lever… Drives me nuts. Plus, I had to run the wipers every minute to even see out the windshield. But at least I got some drawing done. : )
