Illustration friday: Liquid




I just (maybe 10 minutes ago) finished this painting I went on-line and saw that illustration friday theme is "liquid".

Im making serier with four elements and basicly researching elemental mythology.

Water is the element of emotions and feelings. I've had very emotional and quit difficult week so painting this "Mandala" was very purifying. Here is a poem I wrote for it.

My may

My may was full of water
it didn't rain outside
It's a flood inside me

All my feelings in the water
Hate in the waves
Love in the storms

If the rainshowers of june
would leave only spots of water
Spots with joy

And I can be me again
walk barefeet in the watery grass
and laugh again
and
again

Creative tuesday: Trio

                                                 
                                              GOOD MORNING WORLD!

I believe summer has arrived. It was so warm yesterday I could do my yoga practises on the balcony. Oh it is a luxury to own a balcony.

I took part on creative tuesday challenge. This time theme is TRIO.


Here is my entry with three ACEO:s.

I've been doing research about different elements and elementals lately. That is what inspired all of them. Green one is called "Sprite of the Rainforrest". Bluehaired is called "Sprite of north wind" and the red one is "sprite of the south wind". I have sprite of the moss -also and some more "winds" but not ready yet.

All sprites got haunted eyes.
Here are some close -ups










Did everyone had nice mother's day?

I made a special painting for my mom. I was supposed to post it weeks ago here but I forgot.
Anyways may I present

"Blue fairy's garden"

(click to get picture bigger)



My mom's favorite color is blue. So I painted a blue fairy and my mother loves cats so I painted mama cat and kitties and my mother loves gardening so I painted a fantasy garden.

She was very pleased.
   

Did any of you watch eurovisions on saturday? This song was my absolute favorite.



 I didn't really cared about those who got the "winning places". So many performances has stupid effects like growind dresses and insane lightshows.. to take all the focus away from the music.

I also enjoyed songs of France and Estonia.

Fairywishes

Creative tuesday: Monogram and new etsy listings

 
A- is for Agatha
 
Good Day World!
 
There you can see my latest entry for Creative Tuesday- challenge which this time is "Monogram". I was trying to make N.N (for Niina Niskanen obviously) but I couldn't get the fairy fitting there the way I liked. So I siply start with A. It looks so nice I think I have to do all the alphabets.
 
Im having artshow in august and I want to print some cards there. These alphabet fairys would be nice. I hope it fits hte ct- theme anyway.
 
After my working period in south Finland Im back and added some new artworks to etsy. Many many originals are on sale.
 
 
Like my "Starmaiden".
 
Starmaiden is the goddess of stars and nightsky in finnish mythology.
 
And my "Sea wreath"
 
 
This one was inspired by a trip to Hailuoto. It' s  beautiful island in Finland. There is gorgeus nature and beautiful beaches.
 
 
Im so happy that summer is coming:)
