I was asked to define 'happy' the other day...

...I think this is quite about it.

Today I made my favourite Indian dish, Palak paneer, for the second time this week, simply because I was so glad realising one can make it at home too. Another happy thing was that there were some wonderful surprises in the mailbox from my parents and little sister. I also got an adorable present from my friend Tuittu earlier, and the book about works of the ever-captivating Helene Schjerfbeck from my fiancé. So thank you all, you're spoiling me!



Hello sweethearts! Hope your summer has been warm and sunny so far. 

I've managed to rent a studio with some of my school mates. There's a lot to do with the space and so much to learn now that all the materials and tools aren't handed for us by the school. But it's a start. An important one.

It's been too long since I've been painting. At times I find it hard to believe I'm an artist. After all you become something by doing it, not talking about it. But this compulsory break is still about to continue for a month - next week me and my darling are heading to Eastern Europe. I hope I'll return with lots of new energy and eagerness for work.
