Hi everyone!

On holiday in Málaga, we visited

CACmálaga – Contemporary Art Center of Málaga

by Santiago Ydáñez

All of my works are also for

Paint Party Friday

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

this and that after holidays…

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

 

Hi everyone!

Now it’s over – all summer holidays.

We came back on Monday from Greece + Spain holiday.

I tried to do some drawing, painting but I couldn’t really concentrate…

So I forget September’s 29faces challenge this time.

Here’s one I did for fun, one line drawing of Einstein 🙂

Theme Art challenge in September 2017 is
’let’s start’

 

Teemakuun haaste syyskuussa on
‘aloitetaan’ ja minähän aloitin jo lomalla,
tässä lämmittelyä lyijykynällä ja väriähän oli sen jälkeen lisättävä.

 

#1 & #2

Next day I was inspired what I saw at the end of the pool…

 

Seuraavana päivänä uima-altaan päädyssä ollut palmu

innoitti piirtämään. Olen siis päässyt jo hiukan vireeseen! 🙂

Málaga Spain hidden paradise by BLOGitse

 

In Málaga we noticed the smoke in the mountain and hidden paradise?! what???

Here’s the truth of that paradise in the city center…

I hope this is for private use not for airbnb – you can take nice photos but what a shock it

would be to experience this kind of paradise…

It’s nice to be at home again!

 

I hope your life is safe and good.

Hi everyone!
How are you? Did you have a good summer?
My summer was great even if the weather wasn’t perfect…hubby had six weeks vacation so we had time to do things at home and a couple of short trips etc. And tomorrow we’ll escape for two weeks. First one week in Greece and then another in Spain. Can’t wait sun, good food and wine, swimming, being…

I’ll try to draw 29faces too. And to take a lot of photos! 🙂
