Därför skriver jag under Avbryt infart västra Trosa I Trosa har vi två kustnäraskogar kvar,som tryggar vår grundvattentillgång, bidrar med oersättliga ekosystemtjänster och ger allmänheten kostnadsfri tillgång till hälsofrämjande friluftsliv.

Walpurgis Night Valborg

Today we celebrate Walpurgis night in Sweden. Ancient tradtion as far as I know. I made a rockpainting of a fire and some singers in white student hats.

A bird at the nest

I will never grow up, so chalk crayons on a piece of rock will always be fun for me. This time I drew a bird and a nest. Many birds are busy right now with watching over their eggs. This bird has the nest high up in a tree. Maybe it's a whitetailed eagle. Anna

Puffin Lunnefågel

One of my favorite birds. En av mina favoritfåglar. It was fun to do this painting with all happy colors. Det var roligt att måla denna bild med alla glada färger. I would like to see puffins in real life someday. Det vore kul att få se lunnefåglar i verkligheten någongång. Anna

This is why I’m not on fb

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICng-KRxXJ8 In the early 1980's I saw a movie on tv that I never forgot. It was certainly not an "Oscar-film" in any way. That is not why I remember the movie.

Icebreaker Anna

The Swedish Icebreaker boats are named after the nordic gods. Work boats also always have men names. But not mine. My icebreaker is named after me 🙂 and I'm not a nordic god, so I break several unwritten rules in this painting.  I did the painting for more reasons than to break unwritten rules. I… Continue reading Icebreaker Anna

I read a post about Poinsettias over at Jims blog. I found an old painting when I tried to sort out some old pictures on my ipad to free some space on it. In Swedish we call the flowers Christmas stars - julstjärnor. I did this on colored cardboard with dry pastels. Have a great… Continue reading Poinsettias Julstjärnor
