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!

Happy holidays!

…for me.

I don’t need to buy anything right now.

Do you go crazy for shopping this weekend?

Do you buy just for shopping or do you buy things you really need?

 

I’m so happy November is soon gone even if it’s not been

too bad this year.

 

Challenge ‘How to survive November’

in 2017 by Lepis has helped too…

 

‘shadows and reflections’

This summer has been weird.

rain…right now we have a storm in Southern Finland!

 

 

I played with acrylics this week.

These two are just quick strokes, whoosh, whoosh…

and we have full moon today here in Southern Finland!

I wake up every morning 5 am because it’s so bright (I get up later though).

 

We’ve been painting outside walls,

planted grass seeds (hopefully good ones),

organizing furniture and stuff inside…

This sun we bought from Egypt when

we lived in Cairo…
