Frosty winternights


Good morning world:)

I hope your christmas has went well. I got so many things, cards and ate too much food (and I hate new year diets).
Picture above I took at christmaseve. We had -20 celsius and it was very misty outside as you can see.


I found my boy Noki peeking.


and my baby girl Pumpuli was guarding our presents (well. not really a baby she is 13 years old).


Among others I made some candles as gift. The mass looks like caramellsprinkles...


November was "not so much painting" month for me. Above you can see my "earthkeeper dragon" I painted him on august already but I just got him scanned.
Was any of you scared of mayan prophesy? My dragon holding the globewould fit for it. End of the day 21.12.12 I was playing card with my sister at a railwaystation (and drunk men walk by us and wished merry christmas... crazy world).


Here is my lates artwork "three wishes". I wanted to paint my genie with some vintagelook.
Im gonna try to make sepia-version from this with photoshop. "Three wishes" is my this week entry for illustrationfriday. Theme is "glow".

Thank you for visiting
Wish you beautiful 2013

Love and light
Niina

Illustration friday: strech and winter wonderland


Good mornign everyone!

I haven't taken part for Illustration friday yet this year (and it's already december omg..)
But here is my entry for the current theme : strech.

My latest ACEO. Has a little mer-child. She stretches her head to see these weird white things falling from the sky. This one is called "what on the sea is this".
Painted with acrylics.



Continuing with the winter theme. ACEO called "winter wears a mask". This is my bit modernised version of the snowqueen. She is going to enter ball of the wintercastle. My entry for creative everday december theme: celebration




I signed for a day trip to Lapland for next week. We'll see if I make it there. Anyways Aurora Borealis of northern lights as they are known better are isnspiration for this ACEO

ACEO comes from "Artist cards edition and originals". Size of ACEO card is 2,5 x 3,5 in always. Size of a basic trading card. They are collected world wide.
All my three ACEOs above are on sale in my ACEO shop here:http://www.artcardswanted.com/artist.cfm?MID=5036

We finally got snow here (and cold freezing wind)
I think I need to take a photography trip to the forrest next weekend.
Here are some winterimages from past years.


From the nearby forrest.

Thank you for visiting!
Stay warm
