my first Ikebana

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?

Hi everyone!

 

About leaving a comment.

If you’re a Blogspot blogger you see this kind of list of options

for others to leave comments:

 

name:URL option commenting by BLOGitse

 

Here I click name/URL option

and after that it looks (sorry in Finnish!) like this

 

I'm not a robot by BLOGitse

 

So here – as a human being – I need to tick that I’m not a robot.

If you get nasty/bad/saddening etc. comments

they are written by other human being.

But don’t worry, just ignore, delete them.

 

Or publish them!

 

 

 

Theme Art challenge for October is

 

‘domino abstract’

Hi everyone!

On holiday in Málaga, we visited

CACmálaga – Contemporary Art Center of Málaga

 

I was staring this huge 240 x 300 cm (94 x 118 in) painting

by Santiago Ydáñez

Look at these eyes. Especially the left eye, amazing!

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! 🙂

I missed you all – I’ll visit your blogs latest on Monday!

 

 

 

 

Here are a couple holiday pics.

I’ll post more in future postings…

Towards to Mykonos island very early in the morning…

We didn’t stay in this Mykonos hotel, just visited to take photos..

We stayed in a private villa with a pool,

in the middle of nowhere 🙂

 

 

 

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.

Too many catastrophes are going on right now…

But what to do with these?

 

I cut black yarn, wet it, straighten, dried, made a knot, put it

 

on crumpled paper…

 

Here’s the first one, edited version
