It’s getting cold outside

The Cool PenguinThis morning my breath looked like smoke when I came out from our house. The days are still quite warm when the sun is out, but at night frost have been seen.

When I biked to town this morning I was thinking about mittens, and the many dark days to come. I wished I had already knitted a couple of fingersless mittens, but time is never enough. I also thought about that Sweden now has a new leader, a new statsminister, a blue one. It might be a new Sweden that we are meeting today. I hope it means a fresh start and not that we will be getting the blues…

Cool penguin
I started this mixed media painting a couple of months ago, after I finished the crow painting, but it was just recently I did the detail of the speach bubble, with chinese newspaper as background, and the eye, so that I now feel that the Cool Penguin is finished.

  1. Jag fredrar din fina bla mlning framfr fyra bla r i Sverige (oroad).

    Rk ur munnen? Vad hemskt, det r ju bara september! Bst att du snabbar dig med vantarna :) Du har ju sytt mnga fina vantar av filtade trjor, kan du inte gra ett par fingerlsa? (jag skulle vilja se fler ullsaker frn dig, de r alltid underbara)

  2. Oooh, it makes me feel all wintery, even as we head into spring. I really like it – it’s cute – don’t you love mixed media?

  3. Underbar bild! Kikade p? den skrattande kr?kan – den ?r ?nnu b?ttre! Jag n?stan l?ngtar till frostn?tter och r?k ur munnen… 25 ?r i Norrland s?tter sina sp?r, trots att jag numera ?r noll-?tta.

  4. Hanna, where do you live in Sweden. Frost … burrr! Thank graceious we’ve still no frost in the Stockholm area! But perhaps I should start considering bringing in our olive tree and the scented pelargons from the balcony…

  5. I LOVE this penguin. I lived for a year in Norway and I can relate to the scandinavian icyness it evokes. Except…you don’t have penguins there…but we do in Australia!
