SETTING UP FOR ART SHOW IN MONTEREY

My way of living my life was inspired at an early age by an American writer of DO IT books.

There I read, that most people work to make a living, then there are a few who figure out 

how to work to make a living. I belong to the later part. But then I have also had a number of real hardships in life which have certainly added to my choice of lifestyle. We only live once and I have had partners who have passed way too early. My first wife Isobel from Ireland in 1998 and Synnove from Norway in 2005 - both from cancer. So, the way I figure it, the least I can do here, this moment in history - is to live my life to the fullest.
Working with, what I really want even if that is a difficult way for ends to meet many times, but at least I do what I want...


So, when I was looking for my second studio and a place to call home in San Antonio in January 2013 - high rent with a lot of amenities was not on the top of my list. But a place which could be suitable as a studio and also have a space where I could work producing
​my limited edition prints. And last a spot, big enough for a bed and somewhere to cook...


When I came to San Antonio just after Thanksgiving 2011, I had nothing. With nothing I mean no parts of which you can call to be a part of a home. Since then I accumulated some items, like a table to put my computer on, a couple of shelving units to have paints and brushes on and some other art related stuff.
​I managed eventually to buy a cheap bed at Walmart. From my pizza friend here in SA I got a chair ready for the dump....anyway I was able to replace that chair with another chair ready for the dump today (May 2016)...but this looks nicer,,,


If you have in interest to know what all led up to my move to San Antonio, just after Thanksgiving in 2011, I recommend my book The Swedish Painter; http://blur.by/1bNpJ6G
