Last week I visited Latvia for the first time in my life. My parents moved to Riga a few months ago. Riga is a beautiful city and we spent our days walking around the city sightseeing. Apart from Riga we also had time to visit Jūrmala. Below are a few pics from our trip.

I really enjoy the old architecture in Latvia. I was a bit surprised by the amount of abandoned houses and took a liking to photograph many of them since they look like haunted houses to me.

Abandoned (?) house in Jūrmala with a soviet looking star in the yard. I told my dad to stop the car so I could take a picture.

Mermaid pencil drawing

Here is an old mermaid drawing of mine. I did this almost 10 years ago in my early twenties. When I look at this drawing I can't believe the patience I had when drawing all those scale and rope details. I can vaguely remember that I did this drawing in 2 days. Sitting Saturday and Sunday alone at home and drawing for 8 hours a day...drawing like according to working hours.

A few years ago I sold this to a friend. Whenever I visit my friends home, I see my drawing in their living room nicely framed :) It's really nice to sell artwork to friends, since that way you don't completely depart from your work.

Mountain ash

Here is a new painting I did this week. Usually I work on my paintings for months and months...This one I started on monday and finished a few days later. I think this painting suits the time of the year. November is grey and depressing so I felt like using likewise grey scheme colours. I already got a suitable frame for the painting! I love seeing my artwork framed :)
