When you start to create something you sometimes feel the challenge that you must create GREAT ART. Art that has the perfect balance, art that comments the world, art that give people something to talk about or be inspired by.
It is frightening.
You say to yourself: ”Can I really do that? I am just an ordinary human being. Do I really have artistic talents? Maybe I am not a real artist, I’m just faking to be an artist? Some day all the others will find out that?”
And then comes the day when you start create right out of your heart.
When you do not bother what other persons think.
When it is only you and the art.
I cannot say that this is the best ”art” I ever have made. But it is something that is created out of my love and feelings. Two of my friends were getting married and I wanted to make a Mosebacke Horse Sculpture to them as a wedding present. Inspiration caught me when I was working with these two dancing horses – one with side-whiskers and leather vest and one with inspiration from a Dala Horse (yes – she comes from the county Dalarna in Sweden) and I did not care whether I was doing something that art critics would appreciate – my aim was to show this very special couple how much I appreciated them. And people who know them surely will see what I am trying to say <3. It is like a hidden message that only people who know them will understand.
In these pictures you can follow the creation – but you cannot see the finished sculpture as I got so carried away that I forgot to take a picture of it. But I was extremely happy in the church when I realized that they were getting married in the same outfit I had created the horses in – leather vest and traditional Dala dress…
