till early morning…we had a couple (or more?) of bubbly, BBQ and sauna at midnight.

 

It was a beautiful night!!!

Last couple of days have been SUNNY and WARM!

 

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

all 100 sheets are gone……..

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…

Hi everyone!

 

This week in our art class I played with colors.

First bright yellow and then more and more

a gentleman

Friday, March 10th, 2017

 

This week has been a dentist week –

we made a plan for crowns etc.

Feeling a bit nervous, blue, I haven’t had inspiration

to paint nor drawing.

But I found this gentleman I made in January.
