color play

Friday, March 17th, 2017

 

Hi everyone!

 

This week in our art class I played with colors.

First bright yellow and then more and more

layers of colors (gouache).

 

Here’s the result.

Sibelius, Kusama and me

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

 

8.12.2016

is composer Jean Sibelius‘s day

(8.12.1865 – 20.9.1057)

I love his music.

 

Finlandia Hymn is mostly sung in Finnish but

these guys sing it quite well in English, right?

 

There are lots of versions of this piece also called ‘A Song of Peace’.

 

 

 

The other day I visited HAMHelsinki

 

Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition made me feel good.

I enjoyed everything: her art, books and film about her,

and most of all bright colors and those million dots.

post number: 1490

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

 

 

wow, that’s true,

this is 1490th post!

 

Last weekend we visited our friend’s summerhouse

(used all year round). No snow.  The sea looked cold.

But I found some really green spots and grey beauties…

‘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. 🙂

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