Happy New Year 2018 by BLOGitse

Hi everyone!

Hope you all are well and life is good!

 

My break was really relaxing…lots of candles, good food and

nice drinks…No hassle, no stress.

 

This year I’ve been to gym, started studying Spanish again and

found ‘bonesetting’.  It’s very difficult to explain but you might get an idea

 

from here and here.

 

Afterwards I felt like a new me! Next week again 🙂

 

I’ve been painting too but most not finished yet.

This one is ready, abstract, for

 

Paint Party Friday and

 

Theme Art January challenge

 

‘black, white and one color’

 

This is a detail of ‘color’ – a dot of turquoise :

Teemataiteen tammikuun haasteena on

‘musta, valkoinen ja yksi väri’

Yllä oleva kuva on on musta ja valkoinen höystettynä

pikkuruisella turkoosilla täplällä.

 

You wanna smile?

This is perfect for ‘bonesetting’ theme! 🙂

 

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!

Hi everyone!

What a week. Drawing after drawing.

Figure, perspective, shading…I try to keep up pencil drawing plus learning.

I watch tutorials in YouTube and I’m sure that every time

I learn something new. I’ll show you later what I’ve done…

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…

my first Ikebana

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?

Friday, October 6th, 2017

 

Hi everyone!

 

About leaving a comment.

If you’re a Blogspot blogger you see this kind of list of options

for others to leave comments:

 

name:URL option commenting by BLOGitse

 

Here I click name/URL option

and after that it looks (sorry in Finnish!) like this

 

I'm not a robot by BLOGitse

 

So here – as a human being – I need to tick that I’m not a robot.

If you get nasty/bad/saddening etc. comments

they are written by other human being.

But don’t worry, just ignore, delete them.

 

Or publish them!

 

 

 

Theme Art challenge for October is

 

‘domino abstract’

I have a wish for Blogger bloggers:

most of PPF bloggers do NOT have

name/URL option to leave a comment.

Because I have self-hosted blog that

option is the only one for me, please change your settings!

(I don’t use google, wp..or any other options)

 

If you don’t/will not have this option please tell me why not?

 

 

 

Have a relaxing weekend!
