The fall is here and I am enjoying the beautiful vivid spring colors....they just disappear so fast!!Have not been' able to paint for quite some time-different reasons but one of them is failing health! Will get better soon ..under the mean time -as always :Take Care of Each Other Happy Halloween

Long time-no see!!The spring is here and I love every minute of it-my favorite season-the promise of summer!!I have been' too busy with family affairs and my store..and of course my painting always seems to be in the last spot on my to-do-list.But-I really do miss painting so I will take off a few days to see if I can find my motivation to create something extra ordinary-I have a few old windows that will be ready to go-have to get the panel and some new paint-STAY TUNED

I feel like an old "tractor"-you replqce one part then you have to replace the next one and next...and before you know it-the old tractor works again a few years.....

Today I am in my bed-had a knee surgery yesterday and wrapped up in cooling pads and heating pads and my computer...so now I have a little time to write..I am also painting christmas cards(in my bed-gonna' end up with some colorful sheets and comforter I am sure...)Feeling a little better although I miss my mama-endlessly!!When I finally got to know her...but,I am glad I did because now I know more about myself as well-peace will come to my heart-and -stay! Take care and stay busy/ Marja-leena

Long time since I visited my blog...have not been' painting or drawing much at all-I guess sometimes you just do not have any energy or inspiration ..especially when sad things happends and they brake your heart...!! my mother passed away in june this year and one of my dear girl friends got a seizure and lost her life as well....two weeks later! Hard to think and feel more than devastation and emptiness and -deep sorrow. Time will heel-so,I get back when I feel...blessed enough to still be alive/love marja-leena

On a happier note I can now say that I managed to take care of my parents to the point that I can feel safe in my heart -I no longer have to worry about their well beeing'-they are both in great care and I am very grateful to the finnish society(goverment) as to how they take care of their elderly!!KIITOS PALJON SUOMEN MAA!!!
