Palm tree leaves for

 

Geometric Friday

 

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….)

I’M SO SORRY about the painting

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

I just wet the brush on wet prune….

Black ink didn’t run as I wanted -

but I hope you get the idea! :)

I saw this painting last week in Ateneum Art Museum

 

 

 

‘Year 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jean Sibelius.
Ateneum Art Museum makes an early start on the festivities
with an extensive jubilee exhibition that explores
the composer’s contacts with the art scene of his day.’

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!
