Happy this year everyone!

 

How are you?

 

 

I’m full of energy after a break. Holiday was full of food, drinks, sleep, relaxing etc.

 

This week my art classes started again…

 

During the break I did some pencil drawings, doodlings…

Here’s one. no idea nor goal. just flow.

Sibelius, Kusama and me

December 8th, 2016 by BLOGitse received 7 Comments »

 

8.12.2016

is composer Jean Sibelius‘s day

(8.12.1865 – 20.9.1057)

I love his music.

 

Finlandia Hymn is mostly sung in Finnish but

these guys sing it quite well in English, right?

 

There are lots of versions of this piece also called ‘A Song of Peace’.

 

 

 

The other day I visited HAMHelsinki

 

Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition made me feel good.

I enjoyed everything: her art, books and film about her,

and most of all bright colors and those million dots.

wow, that’s true,

this is 1490th post!

 

Last weekend we visited our friend’s summerhouse

But I found some really green spots and grey beauties…

I can’t wait brighter, lighter days!!!

 

26 days for winter solstice

 

How many hours do you sleep at night?

 

Normally I sleep 7-8 hours…but now I notice it’s difficult

to get out of the bed in the morning even if I’m awake…it’s sooo dark!
