Autumn Coat

Soon will ferns and horsetails wither, but I saw my first stars last night and the moon was shining. I saw a red fox today. He seemed to pose for my camera but I think he was very intrigued by the girls.

 

And a video of the woods:

The Artists’ Home

This new painting has been dragging on for a few months. I forced myself to finish it, I had lost the connection. This happens especially at summertime when I’m alienated by my full time job. But in one month, things will be a bit quieter (but not entirely), I’m so looking forward to it, to going back to unrestricted creativity and to being simply me without having to deal with people’s unrealistic, crazy and unfair expectations.

 

 

Another painting of the Blue Hour, my favourite time of the day. I missed the Blue Hour, all these months from April to August. Now it is coming back and with it, a few stars at midnight and of course the Northern Lights.

To prepare for this delightful return to normal life, I did quite a lot of work on my home, repainting furniture in a shabby chic style, weaving blankets,  reorganising my impressive stash of yarns, painting with oils a fresco I will fix on a wall. I am now more than ready to turn my back on the very shallow and brainwashed people I have to smile to every day. I’ve been feeling drained for quite a while now.

This is a video I took one month ago. Now, autumn has come, my favourite season. There will surely be more photos and videos from now on.

Ermines or stoats

Only 2 days until the end of the Midnight Sun! Although still one month before I can see the stars again. But the night is coming back!

Meanwhile, the sun is shining.

I encountered a little while ago a baby ermine. I didn’t have my camera, only my phone unfortunately. This little chap was joined by a brother (or a sister, I couldn’t tell) who leaned on him, it was so cute but I had to keep quiet about it, since the girls hadn’t noticed them. I watched them two full minuts, they were just about a meter away but the dogs never realised.

A few days ago, I saw a few meters away a snowy owl. She was hunting above the meadow and she turned  her face towards me. Instant crush. I was smiling stupidly for the rest of the day. But unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture, since I was driving.
