Days of no worries











B u t t e r f l y
is the theme of this week´s drawing challenge. 
Thank you, Nadine, for inviting me:)
See Nadine´s lovely blog Tiny Woolf and  all the participants of this week.

Well, when thinking of butterflies I think about summer, sun and warmth.
And wings, symbolizing freedom and happiness: fluttering days of no worries.. 
These are my works or details of them, related to this theme and ideas.
Paintings are acrylic or oil on canvas.
The first picture is a detail of  a mixed media piece, see here to see all of it.
The water photo below is from a tiny little romantic river.
There our son proposed his girl friend  - and the answer was yes; now they are married:) .
The music is by my favorite a cappella group in Finland, Rajaton (= Boundless ).

  1. Minäkin pidän Rajattoman musiikista, kyseistä laulua en ollut kuullut aiemmin.

    Blogisi on hyvin persoonallinen ja avaan uuden postauksesi aina mielenkiinnolla. Valokuvasi ja maalauksesi ovat kiehtovia, kiitos kun jaat ne kanssamme!

  8. I loved the hand in the snow with the butterfly of the finger, which is then counter balanced by your lovely warm, summery paintings.

  10. i opened the music to a different window, it suits the mood in your paintings fine, as i was exploring them; the fluttering of beating wings both in the colours and the movement of your paintings. ..

  14. Olen luonnossa liikkuja, vietän kesällä tuntikausia järvellä vaihtelevia värejä ihaillen ja tunnelmasta nauttien ja kuvia ottaen kuvitellen saavani vangituksi jotain talven varalle, parhaita kuvat noista hetkistä ovat kyllä muistikuvat, eivät ne valokuvat.
    Nyt kyllä jäin kiinni tuohon sinun viimeiseen kuvaasi aivan kuin siihen yötaivaasta värejä keräävään järven pintaan.
    Kiitos !

    Rajattoman konsertteihin menemme tyttären perheen kanssa aina kun mahdollista :)
