Somehow there is much more nature here than anywhere else; we live amongst eagles and herons, swans, cows, toads, lizards, dragon flies, hornets, cuckoos, doves, adders, grass-snakes. In the evening we see bats hunting and in the forest close by we see signs that there's a lot of wild boars around! We hear the deers make their funny bark and the cranes with their honking sound. We row out to a little island every day for a swim in the sea, we pick blue berries in the forest, we go visiting my friend that is a farmer.
There is no electricity or running water in any of the houses but this only adds to the charm! It is actually a relief from our ordinary city life with screens constantly turned on. In the evenings instead of the harsh electric light we have the soft glow from lighted candles! The whole experience is like something from another magical dimension.
I always feel very refreshed and inspired when I return home to our life in Gothenburg in Sweden. After returning home to Gothenburg it's usually about time for me to start drawing the collection for following autumn/winter so you can understand were I get a lot of my inspiration from!
