Abstract painting

Few weeks ago when our school started I found the painting I did last year hanging on the wall. I felt so happy they chose my painting to join this group of abstract paintings that contains only 8-10 paintings. It was a part of our class where we studied proportions, composition and other things about building a picture.

The autumn

The trees are getting their autumn colors. Beautiful!

I was looking my old pictures and found these two rock still lives. I love the natures shapes, materials and structures. The first picture is shot in an island near our summer cottage here in Finland (last summer) and the other one is from Cabella, Italy in 2009.

The forever project

Toilet. Almost exactly one year ago (when I started this blog - how the time flies!) I told you about how horrible the toilet was. During the year I've tried to fix it from here and there without money or time, but now I thought I share the progress:

This is how it was:  

I was curious to see whats under the horrible yellowish plastic carpet. The same pattern that were on the wall. I also figured that the floor boards were broken because it bend down a bit. I called my landlord and he fixed it and installed new light gray plastic carpet (just when I thought I got rid off plastic carpets...)

I also decided to remove the wall plastic but once again the outcome wasn't pretty

After the walls were empty I painted everything in white including that dark purple roof (just to get a clean page before inventing something more personal). In the pictures the other wall is still unpainted

All that happened before the summer break. Now with new strength (well having a flu) I continued by making that new shelf to hide some of that plumbing and by getting that new bamboo carpet

My auntie Kaija gave me one of her fashion figures (now I have two :)) It still is looking for its place but I think the black parts looks nice with all that white around

The room still looks a bit impersonal but at least it looks clean and people doesn't get scared after seeing it :) It is easy to continue fixing it now and the next thing i would love to get is a proper mirror cabinet to get all my stuff into it.
