playing with acrylics…

Friday, June 30th, 2017

 

This summer has been weird.

Some nice, sunny days and next hard wind,

rain…right now we have a storm in Southern Finland!

 

 

I played with acrylics this week.

These two are just quick strokes, whoosh, whoosh…

Last couple of days have been SUNNY and WARM!

 

I bought a pile of 300 g paper from England.

Oh, and have I painted – yes, yes, yes!

I really like that paper and I must, must order more of it before

all 100 sheets are gone……..

 

I shot this peony bud in 9.6.2017

on crumpled paper…

On Friday 24th of March

I had two dental implants surgery, both sides.

I feel almost ‘normal’ but eating is still slowly…egg is easy to eat! 🙂

 

Otherwise life is supergreat! (even if we got a snow blanket last night. sigh)

I L-O-V-E this season! More and more light,

snowdrops are blooming in our backyard.
