When I took my road to Austria I had a good opportunity. …………….

I had a good advice from a friend before I left Iceland …If you get a opportunity that is to good too be true, it will not work.

And  that happens.

I waited patient for three weeks and than I decided I could not wait more.

So in Austria I was and I felt I wanted to stay….But I had no plan.

One day someone told me I had to visit Hall in Tirol and see the old town.

And that was it I found a little place for rent in the middle of the old town and after some thinking I decided to rent this place and stay.

So now I have open my little gallery and workshop in the center of Hall in Tirol.

And i love this old town 🙂

Fog and forest

17 Oct

It have been raining and starting snowing in the mountains here in Götzens and the mountain have been covered with fog..It sounds   maybe strange having all this beautiful view ….. but I love this colours and the mystery that this weather creates…

Austria

1 Oct

In Austria I arrived September 20 in the night. I was very lucky that I was so tired after about 12 hours drive so i did´t have energy to be afraid when I drove down the mountains to Innsbruck 16 % gradient in total darkness. My destination was a small village named Götzens  ten minutes from Innsbruck.

Innsbruck the old town ….

and in the dusk it was even more interesting ….

Around Innsbruck is so many small village and a beautiful countryside..

And I got a new fan that followed me all around and of course I made a painting of my new friend,,

I was  invited to spend a day in the mountain with very nice family and have a barbique. They have a 500 years old house so charming almost all original and the view was amazing.

And the autumn is starting with all my favorite colors …….

From Main to New York – Washington DC

25 Aug

It was rely difficult to leave Haystack and this amazing place and the good energy that I found there but I was also very happy that my friend from the school  invited me to go with him to New York and offered my place to stay. In my mind New York was a place I did not have courage to go alone.

We got a ride with one of my class friend…….. we had a plan that I would share the drive with her but I was very thankful we were three and not need for I to drive on the highway.

Haystack school of Mountain

23 Aug

The reason for my traveling to USA was I got a scholarship to take a two week course in Haystack the school of Mountain in Maine.

And it was two weeks in Paradise.

After a little trouble to get there and a little adventure…. train that came one hour to late so I lost the next one and one bus and in the end there was no way to go the last 40 miles except with a taxi about one hour drive but  after driving around for three hour we finely found this hidden paradise.
