Blue is one of my favorite colors but I don’t feel sad at all!

What is your favorite color? why?


These blues are for

First picture of the series is here.



Huomaan että 100 kollaasiin kertyy vain sinisiä kuvia.

Sininen on yksi lempiväreistäni, mutta en ole mitenkään surullinen,

‘not feeling blue’ 🙂 tai sitten olen ‘aina’ surullinen…



These are also for

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!

Theme Art challenge November


‘there’s a window’


I call my entry ‘Six can be one…’




Marraskuun teemakuun kollaasi ‘On ikkuna…’ valmistui kerralla.

Työnimi on ‘kuusi voi olla yksi’

On ikkuna keltainen

tai kultainen niin kuusi voi olla yksi. 🙂

































and all these together look like one big window when gouache, black ink and

water is mixed…






Kun guassi, musta muste ja vesi sekoitetaan tuleee kuudesta yksi. 🙂



Have a relaxing weekend!

It’s November again and time to beat it with Lepis from Parralel Lines.


This November is full of happiness


aesthetics of everyday life / arjen estetiikkaa



‘According to Richard Shusterman we can find everyday life aesthetics from

nature, human body, rituals, sports, fireworks, popular culture,

home decorations, tattoos, cave drawings, cosmetics and so on.

It is to be found from colorful views and inspiring happenings that enrich our lives.’



Here we go, day 1 and 2




In Finland we can drink tap water – no need for bottled water…





When it’s cold outside it’s nice and warm inside…



More aesthetics of my everyday life coming soon.
