Fishing July 08

July 14th, 2008 by Desiree

Well its that time of year again, deep sea fishing is here. Casa Colina plans about 3 trips a year and Friday was our first. The fishing was amazing, although my thoughts of sitting quietly in the chair relaxing as I wait for a bite never happened. We took the grandkids and Melissa along with Jennifer. Many of the people who signed up to go didn't show up so the boat was fairly empty which left the deckhands with little to do but bait our hooks and untangle our lines. It was heaven. I didn't have to stick one hook through a eye, or mouth or gill the whole trip! We barely were able to get our hooks in the water when our lines were hit and we either caught something or lost our bait. Everyone took lots of fish home, but Jennifer won for the biggest fish again. And whats even more amazing is that as they were helping her reel in her fish another line got tangled up in hers and as they pulled her line up another white sea bass hit the other lines bait and they reeled in two fish! It was like she caught them both! Here she is the ultimate fishing queen!

At Lake Hornborgasjön

July 14th, 2008 by Christina´s sketchblog
Here are two sketches I made by Lake Hornborgasjön this sunday. If any of you blogreaders don´t want a history lesson please stop reading now.
In the top drawing you can see a typical mountain for my region. It looks like a flat hat because of the last ice age. 10 000 years ago Scandinavia was covered with a relly thick ice layer. When the ice started to melt and withdraw it brought with it the top layers of the mountains leaving just the very solid stone material left. When the ice line continued north it also left big heaps of gravel and other geological material and therefore we can see long soft hills in the landscape. You can even see a cople of them in the top picture.
When the ice age was over people came wandering in from the south and started to populate this area. The first findings are from 8000 bc. Back then they lived on the mountain sides in winter and in summer they came down to the lake to fish and hunt. The remains of the first family dog in Swedish history is actually found by this lake.
Today it is a very popular place for nature lovers. Each years thousands and thousands of cranes come here to mate and dance their peculiar dance. Thousands and thousands of tourists from all over watch them. Sometimes I wonder though if the cranes partly come here to take a look at these strange human beings.
The building in the lower sketch is built for the tourists and to melt into the landscape. The roof is made by reed from the lake. It used to be the most common roof material in these parts. It has become a very popular place to move to and many artists and musicians love to spend time here.

This is the cover of Vivien's book for our Flying Picture Project. My addition is the stripe of color on the right hand side. If you look at Vivien's Blurb book, she has several of these strip paintings on the back cover. I wanted to have a little visual talk back from her inspiration!.

42: Crooked Cupcake

July 14th, 2008 by mrana

Crookedcupcake

I like imperfection. I find things that are too perfect just a wee bit boring. Lumps, bumps, awkward angles and skewed perspectives are what I delight in.

On the day I left Malaysia a few friends came over for tea and one of them brought over some yummy looking cupcakes that looked pretty perfect and tasted delicious. I'm afraid I'm the one who added the few imperfections to this one so it is not to be blamed for the way it's been represented. Yes, I draw 'white lies' too ...

I've also discovered photographs I took of the cupcakes made by my nieces and nephew so stay tuned for more of them in the future ...

The Elusive Key

July 14th, 2008 by Ujwala

Sadhu

Everyone is looking for answers to life, its meaning, what lies ahead, who we are and the list goes on and on. Sadhus, Indian holy men, have given up domestic life, its responsibilities and pleasures to search for answers. Hoping to find the key that will unlock the door. Hoping that behind it will be answers to all those questions. Hoping that it will lead to Nirvana. Sadhus lead a very austere existence and even though he is colourfully dressed here and leaning against an equally colourful door that’s not what his life is all about.
