These past 4 days I have introduced four friends to you, that are very dear to me and have really been angels for me this past year.
But oh, I have been blessed with one more magical encounter that I don't want to keep secret from you.
This picture looks like it shows two Norwegian trolls that can be rarely captured on camera 😄, but in fact it is my wild knotted self and my wonderful Norwegian friend, cook and photographer Stefan.
You haven't seen his adorable face yet, but you have seen many pictures that he has captured with his magic lense. They call him the colour catcher of the North 😇
Stefan and me met on the very last days of this wonderfully chaotic year, but our encounter has been very meaningful to me.
He invited me with open arms and heart to spend some time in his wooden Villa Bohemia, a troll castle in the fairy forests.
Stefan calls himself the womb of my book 😃 I must have read the story to him a thousand times, and each and every time he seems to listen with newborn ears. Stefan patiently sails through my artistic moods - from overwhelmed enthusiasm to creative devastation ;) He hears my stomach rumble, and only a minute later I find a bowl of spicy soup next to my painting. He puts a blanket over me when I have fallen a sleep by the table, paintbrush in hand.
In only 30 days Stefan turned from a complete stranger to a precious friend I never want to miss again.
And the most exciting part of all of this: he helped me find something I have longingly dreamt off for about ten years. And now it is here. And it's so beautiful. And I can hardly believe that I am blessed to call this piece of singing wood my own. Oh, I can't wait to show you ❤❤❤ Stefan, thank you for having me 💛
You have been a huge part of absolutely everything... without your soothing womb this book would not be the same.
