Huh, not easy but I’m not giving up.

More coming later! :)

Starting this year 8th of December was a Flag Day to honor

birthday (8.12.1865) of composer Jean Sibelius and the Day of Finnish Music.

Jean Sibelius and Finnish Music Day 8.12.2011

 

I loooove Sibelius’s music.

Finlandia is long (about 8 minutes) but worth every second.

Hope you like it too!

photos of the weekend #48 / creative madness

 

I love music, art, theater, dance…

 

This autumn has been inspiring. I’ve learned a lot about painting, colors and different mediums.

I like acrylic paints, watercolors, Chinese ink and galligraphy brushes are also interesting.

Or acrylic crayons. Add a drop of water and the picture is totally different!

wow, I’m having fun!

 

What have you created lately?

Moi kaikille!

 

Kaikki blogini sulkeutuvat tiistaina 13.9.2011 palvelinvaihdoksen takia.

 

Lähden jenkkeihin perjantaina 16.9. enkä ehdi reissun aikana bloggailla,

joten

palaan bloggauksen pariin viimeistään lokakuun alussa.

 

Jos olet käynyt San Franciscossa, kerro mitä ja miksi kannattaisi kokea!

Mukavaa syyskuun loppua!
