Hello blogging friends
I hope you've had great Halloween weekend (those who celebrate it).
We had snow few days ago here in northern Finland but sadly it has melted away by now.
I hope we get snow in December. I didn't have any holiday mood last year since it was raining on Christmas.
I joined this fun art challenge called Teemakuun taidetta
In November challenge is to create 9 still life pieces.
Here are my first ones.
On left there is one of my snowglobes (with a tiny moomin) and on the right
a candle holder and some orange candles.
I used wet-on-wet technique.
Creative Tuesday - current challenge is Minty.
Only minty thing that came to my mind was minty tea.
I don't know if you can see it on the pictures but the page with the ink drawing has backround paper painted with minty/spearmint tea left overs.
I am bit tea-obsessed (and cartoon mug obsessed )
Here is a nice "tea" poem I found:
"The first cup moinstens your lips and throat
The second shatters my loneliness
The third causes the wrongs of life fade gently from my recollection
The fourt purifies my soul
The fifth lifts me to the realms of the unwinking gods
- Chinese Mystic
My camera's memorycard was missing whole last week that is why I can post my previous ct - entry just now.
Idea was to create artwork around found object(s)
Watercolor buttons are simply made for caterpillars and butterfly wings.
Here without the buttons
I hope to reach 1000 fans on my facebook art page before next year
So if you enjoy my art come for a visit
Love light and inspiration
