New artworks and winter images


"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds longs to play with your
hair"

-Khalil Gibran

Can be found on my artjournal.

Here is my latest "fantasypaintings"

It's called "Dragon whisperer"
This maiden comes from a long familyline of Dragontamers.

Weather has been crazy few times it's been raining so much I've been shore that all the snow will melts away before the holidays but that hasn't happened (yei!)




At the end of November I went to the nearest city to see Kekri celebration. Kekri is an old finish harvest festival. It was spent at the beginning of November and used to be biggest celebration of the year in the calender of ancient finns. These days christmas has taken that Place but some places people are starting the Kekri traditions again.

Kekri was a festival of good food and dance and then people also burned a Kekri ram.


Here is the ram they had in the city. I tought it was quite handsome:)


And here it burns. Kekri was also considered as the beginning of a new yer so burning the ram symbolizes lot's of new beginnings.

I hope everyone has great wintertime with  family and loved ones

Thank you for coming and come back often
