Purple water

I posted it already back when I just started blogging and I think I created this image around the time of the Tsunami in Japan. Now that Sandy is in full force in the US I got reminded about this image I made back then. Though I guess they have better things to do than … Continue reading

Those dreadful artist statements..

After much consideration I finally finished my artist statement. I’m not the only artist who has a problem with the whole statement thing.

The question then took me by surprise but after a short consideration I answered; “the amount of time it takes to create it..”. … Continue reading
