patterns for spring or spring patterns

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Hi everyone!

We had about one week when nothing came down from the sky.

It was so cool! No rain, no snow. We got even some sunshine!

Last couple of days we’ve had minus temperature and

light powder snow now brightens our terrace…very pretty.

 

I got inspiration to sew again.

First I had to cut and modify patterns, yak, I don’t like that at all.

Finally today I almost finished a tunic,

next one is so much quicker to make.

I haven’t had much time to paint nor to draw but a couple sketchers at least.

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!

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…

I had an eye control today. There’s still a tiny, tiny ‘drop’. Hopefully it goes away and

 

my sight will get totally sharp with time. No glasses needed but good light yes.

 

Next control is in August.

 

Some time ago I sketched this very quickly to remember what a saw –

so many bubbles around me…

I bought a painting (similar as below) from an artist who’s living and working in Kainuu.

Kainuu?!?

 

From wikipedia:

Kainuu is a region
(maakunta / landskap) of Finland.
It borders the regions of Northern Ostrobothnia, North Karelia
and Northern Savonia. In the east it also borders Russia.
Kainuu is known in the ancient Norse sagas as Kvenland.

 

In Kainuu sunset is about 11 pm, rise about 3 am!!!

 

Urho Kähkönen, an artist living and working in Kainuu.

Urho Kähkönen’s painting

 

 

I’d love to learn how not to paint too full, block the whole canvas, to leave space,

air…

 

Look Urho’s older works here,

this video is a combo of art – paintings and music!

 

 

 

 

 Have a relaxing weekend!
