Here are some more photos from my artist residency experience at Red Barn Studio. It was a great feeling to be able to use this space by myself day and night. It's a magical place; a historical charming building with details of the artist's spirited craftmanship. During the two weeks' stay, I did some experiments with some abstract painting techniques, worked on a prototype of a sculpture, and did some quick gestural representational paintings. Every new work I did there was experimental and I'm glad I was able to try these while I did not have any pressure or obligation to show them in public.

It's always nice to stroll around Lindsborg, so-called "Little Sweden." I cannot stop taking photos of kawaii cute things here. Got a little Dala horse ornament with our family name from a gift shop called Hemslojd. Had a glass of Boba at a cozy White Peacock tea shop. Checked the Anatoly Karpov Chess School that we came for chess camps when our kids were little. Made it to the famous restaurant Ol' Stuga. Of course, I didn't miss the Sandzen Gallery which has a special place in my heart because of their Kansas Collegiate Aesthetics Exhibitions where I showed my work in public for the first time. This town makes me feel so peaceful.
