Pumpkin time!



Autumn is passing by and winter is arriving. We had our first snow yesterday in northern Finland.
I carved some pumpkins who already got snow covered in the garden.


So beautiful. So silent.


There is something magical in the first snow. Don't you think.


Flowercat got some snow to the mossy fur.



My newest Halloween painting. I decided to call it "double, double, toil and trouble"

(click images to make them larger)

This one is few years back but still one of my personal favorites. It's called "biggest pumpkin is mine". Halloween dragon and black cat on the pumpkin fields.

Both paintings created with watercolors.




Autumn Blessings

Illustration friday: moustache and some new fairy-tarot art


This week illustration friday theme is MOUSHTACHE. I painted an ACEO with a gentlemen cat who has quite handsome moushtache. I hope you like him. Swirly moon on the backround. Who do you think has the most great moushtache? I think maybe Hercule Poirot or maybe Eric Idle as Passepartout in "around the world in 80 days"




Pictures from Google

From moustaches to Tarot- cards

I got to finish two new paintings

Queen of Cups


(click image to get it larger)

Queen of cups controls our both inner and outer world. She keeps them in balance.
Presents feminine side of us. Dreams, visions, dreams, subconsious world. Card advice is to get contact within innerself and to be honest with our goals.

Other card I made was

The Sun


The Sun symbolizes energy, inspiration and warmth. It is the source of inspiration and encourages us to fullfill and follow our dreams. It is inner strenght inside of us also harmony and joyful relationships.

Sun card calls us to create new friendships and be open to the world and all the possibilities around us.

Models for these tarot-cards were my friend Anis and her daughter Rauna.

I recently opened a store at Society6

There is special offer running this weekend. All the prints have global free shipping till october 13th


Blessed weekend everyone

Faces of fantasy

                                          
                                                Hello Blogworld!


Time for inspiration-avenue. Picture above was meant for last weeks "El dia de los muertos" (day of the death) challenge but it was finished bit too late. No harm done since new theme is faces.

You can find this piece on my artjournal. Painted with very vivid acrylics.




Here is another face. This time face of a mermaid. I created this mixed media piece this summer. Camera (and photoshop) don't do justice for all the glitter and sparkle there is on this piece.
Painted also with acrylics.
