Happy Solstice everyone! :party:

Sun noveau by Loulin

A patch of blue, a yellow haze
Dark grey shadows and so short days
Say goodbye to precious light
Street lamps poor, not very bright
It seems forever winter stays

Frosty roads and slippery stepping
Red and runny nose we’re getting
Stiff wet toes and icy fingers
Dreams of sandy beaches lingers
About clumsy clothes we’re fretting

We can’t dive deeper, the night will end
Light returns like a long lost friend
If we just hold on ‘till solstice day
The dark will turn and go away
Victorious sun will shine and mend

**************************************'

I’ve done these little poetry bits for three years in a row now. It’s becoming quite a ritual. :D
There are loads of people living way further north than me but it’s still pretty gloomy on my longitudes this time of the year, especially when there’s no snow yet. A reasonably clear and sunny day you get about 6 to 6,5 hours of somewhat proper daylight. An overcast, dirty grey, day you get about 5 hours or even slightly less. Thankfully things will start to change from now on. :dance: 

  • Mood: Tired
  • Eating: Anything but food
  • Drinking: Hot tea!

I'm a vertically challenged oddball from the (seasonally) frozen North with a slightly mad passion for art...

To create is to live and I live to create, entertaining myself and hopefully a few of you as well. :XD:

This is totally a random thing but I just had to...

Have you ever heard or seen THIS? www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ1E_9… 
Warning! Flashing cartoon and neon lights and anime charachters included. Cover your eyes! :XD:

I know it's already a quite "old" thing but that song is SWEDISH and the band is from Sweden. And this song and different dancing anime characters have become a REALLY popular theme (or more likely a meme) in internet. And now it's playing in my head again and again...

What you Swedes will do next? ;)

First off... Are you trying to punish me for something? If I'd like to tortue someone I'd probably choose a song and a video like that. 

It probably is a bit old, yeah, though I have no idea from when. The techno/dance type of music isn't my style so don't come across it very often. Thank the gods for that if people are making stupid tuff like this. :XD:

I'm embarrassed on behalf of my countrymen. :giggle:

Thousand humble pardons for making you to suffer this. :XD:

I have to admit that it has a catching beat.

You have a very good collection of drawings here, not to mention the wonderful blend of colors you put on your paintings. Looking forward to see more from you :)

Thanks. Always happy to hear someone likes my stuff (even the the paintings, as I'm not always that comfortable with colours ;P )  
I'm not the fastest artist there is. Real Life tends to get in the way a lot. But I hope I can continue to deliver really good stuff with future uploads.

Kiitos, Panu. 

Very good indeed. If only I knew what "klara vappen" meant it'd be even greater :XD:

Hehe!

"Klara vappen" is not proper Svedish (like you noticed :D) but a "twist" translation used by us Finns.

The origin of the saying comes from "Hyvää Vappua".   ("Ha den bra första maj/Valborg")

From there we twisted it to be "Glada Vappen".   ("Glada Valborg för alla")

And once more to "Klara Vappen".   ("Klara Valborg")

 
This is a hunorous way to say this wish to somebody as it basically means "Have a sober first of May". :XD:
Hopefully you get something out of my explanations as my Swedish is more than a little rusted.
