We celebrated midsummer last Friday. The weather was perfect to stay up

till early morning…we had a couple (or more?) of bubbly, BBQ and sauna at midnight.

 

It was a beautiful night!!!

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a beautiful, sunny week! wow!

Every morning I’ve painted something and then enjoyed

sunbathing in our terrace…

 

I’ve put more layers on this canvas

now it looks like this, not complete yet.

I’ve played with coffee. A few coffee based papers are waiting

for action.

 

I don’t like this as a painting but

I love those details of it!

pouches, teeth and oven…

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

 

 

 

First of all,

I’m sorry not visiting your blogs but last couple of weeks have been

‘difficult’.

 

My diverticulosis activated again but I started antibiotics on Tuesday.

 

My dental project has began – now I have six temporary teeth

on upper jaw…

sitting on that chair 2,5 hrs wasn’t that bad. My gums were totally numb,

so no pain.

 

Our oven said ‘bye bye’, started to smoke. Today we got new one working.

 

Isn’t all this enough for a couple of weeks? 🙄

I cut black yarn, wet it, straighten, dried, made a knot, put it

 

on crumpled paper…

 

Here’s the first one, edited version
