Meet the Neighbors

There are two houses in the meadow behind us. The closest one is this little red stuga, occupied by Claes and Eva-Lis.

They're both artists. Claes makes museum- quality models of ships, mostly old Viking ships, but more recent types, too.

He was preparing for a visit the next day from the Stockholm Rotary club, and he had set out a number of his models in their studio at the rear of their house, which he was kind enough to show me.

Eva-Lis is a painter, I saw a number of her watercolours; here's an example of her work. Margaret tells me that Eva-Lis has a painting school in the summer, underneath a tent in the meadow. Ann was apparently a student last year. That sounds like fun!
