ho-ho-holiday…summer holiday

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

will start on Monday…

 

I’ll be offline until September, yes!

It will be traveling, a painting course, hopefully more

sun and warmer days!

 

We eat oatmeal porridge every morning –

our tummies are happy! 🙂

 

I’ll be back after oat threshing here in Finland.

This summer has been weird.

Some nice, sunny days and next hard wind,

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

 

 

I played with acrylics this week.

These two are just quick strokes, whoosh, whoosh…

I bought a pile of 300 g paper from England.

Oh, and have I painted – yes, yes, yes!

I really like that paper and I must, must order more of it before

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a beautiful, sunny week! wow!

Every morning I’ve painted something and then enjoyed

sunbathing in our terrace…

 

I’ve put more layers on this canvas

now it looks like this, not complete yet.

I’ve played with coffee. A few coffee based papers are waiting

for action.

 

I don’t like this as a painting but

I love those details of it!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for your kind and supportive words last week!

This week has been better even if I almost

ate a dental implant screw. It’s back again…oh boy.

But otherwise life is good! 🙂

pouches, teeth and oven…

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

 

 

 

First of all,

I’m sorry not visiting your blogs but last couple of weeks have been

‘difficult’.

 

My diverticulosis activated again but I started antibiotics on Tuesday.

 

My dental project has began – now I have six temporary teeth

on upper jaw…

sitting on that chair 2,5 hrs wasn’t that bad. My gums were totally numb,

so no pain.

 

Our oven said ‘bye bye’, started to smoke. Today we got new one working.

 

Isn’t all this enough for a couple of weeks? 🙄

 

 

These are for
