weekend #13 – back at home in Helsinki

March 27th, 2015 by BLOGitse received 7 Comments »

 

Hi everyone!

 

After a long and interesting holiday

I’m in Helsinki again.

 

It was soooo good to sleep in own bed, aaaah!

 

I will post several weeks about our trip -

I took over 1.000 photos! and some

of them I want to share with you…

 

As you know I couldn’t really paint

but one day I put a rubber glove on

and started to play with watercolors – better than nothing!

 

 

These are for

 

Paint Friday Party

We visited

MCA Sydney (Museum of Contemporary Art)

I’ll show more art from there in future weeks…

 

I really, really like these Peter Kennedy’s works!

Palm tree leaves for

It’s been hot, humid – 94% – we’ve had it all -

sun, rain, thunderstorms, hot and cold drinks…

 

I found these ‘red soft prunes’ in a supermarket,

actually they’re orange -

I did a painting with a color of these prunes.

(When you eat it your tong is totally orange….)

It’s b-a-aaaad but I painted it with prune’s original color!
