Art journal #3

It feels good being back in my studio working again. It took me a few days to get settled in and to figure out where to begin though. I always find it a little bit difficult to get started again after being away from the studio.

It is a little dark today, thick clouds and rainy!
I had decided before I got home that I should start painting all those commissions I have got but never begun. But after cleaning the studio and organizing my new materials I brought with me from Finland I got down to business.  I have now the background to three of the commissions almost done. There will be a few birds, some spring themed 'things' and two forests… I will only give you this teaser now, because I will not post these paintings online before they are done and the new owners have seen them.

My art journal number 3 is full now, so I thought I would share some pages and spreads I do not think I have shared online before:

This is it. All thick and wonderful and totally full!

Nature and birds - Pic's from Finland

My holiday to Finland is over and I'm back in China! Two months fly past pretty fast when you are having fun… The autumn had started when I left with rain, leaves turning yellow and colder weather. I like autumn. I like the smell of it and the air that turn crisp.

Today I would like to share with you my favorite pictures from my trip to Finland. As the title to this post suggests, it will be pictures from nature and a lot of birds.

Tern. Look at those fabulous wings!
Juvenile Chaffinch.
Sea gull. I'm not a 100% sure which, as I have never seen a seagull with such grey legs before. 
Mute swan.
Our morning view from the cottage.
Sunset on the island.
Flower beauty.
Wilted beauty.
My favorite colour.
All the colours of a spiderweb...
Driving home under a splendid sky.
And last I leave you with a picture from my grandma's 102'nd birthday party!!! An awesome lady, I hope to be like her one day!
