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!

Finland, Finlandia….

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

 

Hi everyone!

 

After Finaland’s 100 yrs birthay in 6.12.

we celebrate again.

 

8.12. is

Jean Sibelius and Finnish music day.

 

Here’s one of my favorite Sibelius music, Finlandia.

 

 

“Finlandia, Op. 26, is a tone poem by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

It was written in 1899 and revised in 1900.“

more in Wikipedia

 

 

My gouache painting was inspired by Sibelius’s music…

…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.

Hi everyone!

What a week. Drawing after drawing.

Figure, perspective, shading…I try to keep up pencil drawing plus learning.

I watch tutorials in YouTube and I’m sure that every time

I learn something new. I’ll show you later what I’ve done…
