Peony and Parakeet

Thank You for Being There!

Two things happened yesterday. First, I sent my 100th email newsletter! I know there are people who have subscribed to it from 2010 when I sent out the first one. (If you are not a subscriber yet, click here!) Thank you!

Second, I saw sunflowers in full bloom and thought how they are like art: bringing joy and relaxation! I was working in my recording studio today, remembered the flowers and made this video for you. Thank you for being there, remember to nurture your creativity!

    1. Thanks, Sandi! If you look closely, I don’t use that many colors, picking colors like blue and purple make yellows and oranges pop!

  1. Thank you, for the time and talent you put into each video and blog post. I am so very glad to have found you-your art is opening up a whole new world for me. This sunflower has inspired me to give it a try; I’m using it as a warm-up exercise for you upcoming class. 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing this Päivi, it’s like magic how you work pen and pencils – loved watching this video, it made me smile. Thank you!

  3. Beautiful sunflower, beautiful music. May I ask the name of the music you are playing while drawing. The music is very emotional and moving. I can’t wait for your class to begin. Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Joanne! I buy most of my music from a music service called JewelBeat.com I think they compose most of their music. This is called Burning World. Great to meet you at the class!
