Time is short now, I.m again busy working to get ready for a new exhibit. Here are works by the women in Village Bilaon Ki Basti of Jaisalmer. I wash them and then I dry the embroideries on the wall stretching them with steelpins.As you can see in the picture. Then I will put them upon a cartoon of handmade paper. Theese embroideries are very popular so I hope to sell some of them in my exhibition in NAAS Handicraftcenter outside Gothenburg. The exhibit. will be 13 sept- 12 okt. Goodnight now from Elsa

I´m an artist who prefer to work with textiles,i.e. embroideries and painting.I live on the west coast of Sweden between Gothenburg and Oslo (Norway)130km N of Gbg.
Water in Desert is my art project since some years.From the droughts in Marocko and the Coca-cola-companie´s misuse of water to the THAR- desert in NW of India.I want to find and tell about actions of hope and awareness that exist among people where the old "rainwaterharvesting"
culture is still in common remembrance.This blog is about this work, which has lead me several times to Rajasthan and embroidering village-women and girls there.
Most of the time I work in my studio. I´m preparing for exhibitions in Sweden with my own work as well as the embroideries by the Indian women.Follow this adventure out in the blue..........
excuse for my English,I write also for friends in India and elsewhere.
But I understand Swedish! if you wish to make a comment in Swedish it´s very much OK.Solong! Elsa
