After much perseverance I got a job teaching, which was my goal and I am so happy for it! Also I'm doing more art which was my dream. I love art as a personal expression but I never really showed it before. Now I am sharing it with others in the hopes that they like it and want it so that I can make more! Painting is fun. Here is a photo of a wall of paintings donated to a local art school for their fundraiser. I am not telling you which one is mine except that it is called "Joe's Playland" . See black framed artwork second from bottom on the right.

Take a look in particular at Oresunds Bridge (see above) and Ribbersborg Kallbadhus if you want to see a touch of old-time Sweden. Malmö is an interesting city with many fine sites but it is kind of considered the roughest of the Swedish cities, perfect for a crime thriller like Bron!

Here is a cool upscale blog that does what I would have liked to if I had the time, training or capabilities. 😉 http://thehousethatlarsbuilt.com/
But I guess it takes a lot out of you. Here's what the writer says, see below. This is quoted from the New York Times blog and puts it all into perspective:
Brittany Watson Jepsen writes The House That Lars Built, a blog with a clean Scandinavian aesthetic. Her life hasn’t been nearly as streamlined lately. “Right now, our home is a disaster of props because we had four photo shoots this week,” said Ms. Jepsen, 32, who shares an apartment with her husband, Paul Jepsen, in Provo, Utah. “Tuesday night I just sat there and I couldn’t move. This is the week of burnout.”
And when Ms. Jepsen posts one of her craft projects, like making a custom coverlet for a camp chair, she said, it may take her days to shop for the materials and create, style and photograph it. Then she has to figure out a way to translate it to her readers in six easy steps. “D.I.Y. takes a lot of planning, executing and money,” she said. “Even the simplest of projects take quite a bit of materials.”
