Mansikki in action

Looks like my blog is turning into a blog about Mansikki. But I can't help it, she's just too cute! Even when she's destroying things...

12 photos - 2

This is Mansikki. She is now 6 monhts old.

This time taking the picture was more challenging. My camera battery is dying, it only lasts for a few minutes at a time. And Mansikki has all the energy in the world.

Picture was taken October 11th 2009, 9:33am.
1/400 s, f 5.6, 18 mm

Edit: I posted about the project here.

sad apples

Today there was frost on the ground for the first time this fall. Maybe that's why this apple felt so sad.

This apple was luckier. He had a friend to comfort and keep him warm.

IF: welcome

Mansikki, our little puppy, always makes me feel so welcome when I come home.

A quick sketch with soft pastels and photoshop. This is first of a kind, I think I'll try and do more.

Cute fruit and berries

The challenge word for Monday Artday this week is 'cute'. I modified some illustrations I did for a book that was published this week.

Just going through old work files trying to find inspiration for a book I'm illustrating. It's kind of a sequel to one I illustrated last year.

Something sweet...

Because I have been so busy (or lazy) I haven't got any new pictures to post here. So here's a pick from my Picasa album Sweetsauer Photo Hunt. New pictures coming up, I promise!

Oh, and you have until May 7th to go out there and vote (for me :)))

First rain

Today it rained for the first time this spring. Up until now it has snowed instead of raining. Maybe now all the snow will melt and we'll have proper spring.

Some of the pictures looked almost like black and white photos because the weather was so gray.

On the beach ...again


A reflection: sun reflecting from melting snow, water and ice.

An interesting sky: sun about to set.
