Snefnug Studios
Welcome to Snefnug Studio! For all of you non-Scandinavians out there, "Snefnug" means "Snowflake" in Danish. My husband is a true Dane and when we got married, I wanted to include him in my artistic endeavors, so I asked him for Danish words for all kinds of things (Butterfly, Rainbow - you get the "drift). I finally asked him what was Danish for snowflake and he said, "Snefnug". I liked it. So now all of you know a little bit of Danish too! Have fun going through the site. As you can see, I paint alot of different subjects, and they are all transparent watercolor, so have fun browsing and above all, enjoy yourselves at Snefnug Studio.

June is Jumpin’

Lots has happened this month – some not so great and some fabulous so I guess you could say that the Universe is balancing things out for me.  First, I did not get into the juried show for the Idaho Watercolor Society – I will also add much to the astonishment of friends and family.  However one must keep in mind that the jurying process is completely subjective – so what stands out for one person, won’t for someone else.  Such is the life of any artist whether the genre is music, dance, painting, writing…you name it.  I did take the workshop presented by the Juror, Susan Webb Tregay, which I found really useful and gleaned a lot of great information.  Oh and I learned a lot too!  I had also entered the same painting in another juried show, this one a national exhibition at the Pleiades Gallery in New York City running from July 15 – August 7.  Well I found out last week that I DID get into that show….again with the SAME PAINTING….but a different juror and a different set of eyes.  So you see – everything is totally subjective.  This is nice getting into this exhibition as the juror is M. Stephen Doherty, the Editor -in-Chief of American Artist, Watercolor, Drawing and Workshop magazines as well as a published author on many art books and is an artist himself.  So “Mr. Hooper’s Garden” will be going to the Big Apple for a few weeks to hang.  Great news for me as that painting was my “sick” painting – in other words, while I was ill this winter and couldn’t paint, I had all this time to think about how to work on it.  So something paid off for all of those hours I lay on the sofa!  Hopefully all the good vibes keep going!!!!
