I had an unvoluntary break from painting fro a few months. Around Christmas I tried to paint this and that, but it was mostly a struggle. Lately I've been so busy with other things that I haven't had any time for painting anyway. The other day I took one of my terrible Christmas paintings and tried to work on it and voilá it turned out nice :)
Sometimes it's good to get a little distance to everything. I feel like the ability to paint has come back to me :)

Transient (40cm x 50cm acrylic paint on canvas, year created: 2015)

Detail of Transient

a desparate attempt to safe the painting...painting the hands over...
First the painting looked like this, but I didn't like it (especially those bodybuilder arms!)

My yearly tradition is going to the Helsinki Burlesque Festival. The festival was once again amazing! This year I got many pictures by the amazing Atelieri O. Haapala.

  • The first picture is me and my fiancé Asko :)
  • The second one is me and my lovely burlesque dance friends
  • The third pic is me and the oh so beautiful, talented and super creative performer Golden Treasure from Hamburg (my previous hometown!!)
