Winter Fairies and Creative Tuesday Starry Night


Hey To All My Blogging Friends!

I hope everyone are doing good. Im bit exhausted. I've been on three fleaymarkets today.
I found some christmasgifts so it's all good.

It was again time to take part on http://www.creativetuesdays.blogspot.com . I missed the last challenge. I had so many school things piling up I had to focus on them. Now Im back.
This time theme was literally made for me... "Starry Night".

Actually both on my latest paintings fit for the theme. One with the fox has a legend behind it.
I've lived most of my life in northern Finland. It is enough north to get snow on winter (getting more rare every year sadly) but it's not enough north to see Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). 

Anyways... There is an old legend in Lapland that when the firefox runs trough the snow and waves his/her tail that is how the northern lights are born.

As a child I was very fortunate to travel even more north to meet my grandparents. I remember sitting on the snow and watching all those colors in the sky.



Here is "Winterbringer". I made this painting for a contest in deviantart. .http://www.rosydream.deviantart.com

Snowflakes come to the earth when the Snowfairy sprinkles her beautiful wings:)



        

I've been very much into Mandalas lately. This on I call "RuneMandala".

I was inspired by the Edda- poems and the Norse mythlogy

Grey wolf of the North
Squirrel of the East
Cow of the South
Wildboar of the West

As you can see it   is a compass also a wheel of the year.
Each rune fits for the specific sabbat.



Some mood photos for the End.

Look I knitted a Doll!
Im gonna make her some more clothes and accesories too!


My painting table with some lights. Brushes and a cup of tea. If you wonder the tootbrush
that's the best way to make some snowy scenes.

Thank you for visiting
May fairies sparkle your day!
