Today is the International Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Day 2018.

In high school we had a chance to practice a couple of weeks at a workplace, I guess to get a feeling how a regular job looked like. Mr Sune Fick who was a well known artist in my hometown agreed to let me come to his house and studio where he teached me how to paint in oil. It was a truly exciting experience and I learnt a lot. 
Mr. Fick was one of the Founders of the Mouth and Foot painters Association and he spoke so warmly about it and encouraged me to apply. So after a few years in 1990 I finally sent away some of my paintings to the jury and I was accepted. 
Since then the Association has become a bigger part of my life for each year that pass and I’ve got a lot of really good friends. I’m also very happy for the contact I have with many people who buy and enjoy our reproductions: cards and calendars etc. through the letters that I write three times a year together with our spring cards, Christmas cards and the yearly calendar that we send to a lot of households in both Sweden and Norway.
A few years ago I made a film about my painting together with my dear friend and excellent camera man Mr Johnny Lindgren. And I thought this special day on which our founding father Erich Stegmann passed away and to celebrate the wonderful legacy that he left us all that I want to post this blog and film.
