Winter swimming

Last winter I tried out ice hole swimming. I never thought I would do it but since my 8 year old nephew went swimming as well, I could not be a sissy and I had to dip in the ice water too ;) Luckily there was sauna afterwards ;) ...and yes, of course I made somebody take a photo of this unusual event! These kind of things need prove!

cold dip in the ice hole...
...and sauna :)

Stencil painting 4

I did another stencil painting. I told you, it was going to be a series ;) I wanted to paint somehow a "swamp woman" in this... from the end result I get a jungle vibe. Well ,close enough to my original plans.

Stencil 4 (50 x 40 cm, acrylic paint on canvas, year created: 2013)

Here is a photo of my grandparents in the summer of 1954. My grandparents were both entrepreneurs. Grandmother made lamp shades and she also had a shop where she sold children's clothing. My grandfather was a photographer and he had his own studio. He was also talented in drawing and painting, but he was so critical with his own work that he threw most of his artwork away. 

Anyway, I wanted to post this photo because I think it's really beautiful and honors my grandparents who have both passed away.
