Salted Herring was ‘Gone Fishing’ for a while. Now the blog is getting a face-lift with some fresh ventures. New art is leaving the nest in the form of birds, and more artwork is in the process.…not to forget the photography either. I have been gifted THREE new fantastic tools: two gorgeous, but easy to carry around cameras, one larger with interchangeable lenses, and one fit to the pocket size with super long fixed zoom, plus a mighty iPhone ( thanks again Sam, Cory, and Kalle, love you!). My love with photography is revived!
For the past months I have been painting busily, big and small. My latest Bird Paintings are small in size, but big on textures. They are painted entirely with palette knife for certain abstractness, and definitely for the mighty texture. All oil on canvas.
I have made a pact with myself to update the Salted Herring more frequently. Please be patient.…all takes time. Like it is said “hyvää kannattaa odottaa”, heh, pun intended. I don’t know how the heck it is said in English ( make me wiser, please!), but something like just wait, ‘good things’ are coming…or at least that is the plan.
You know how the birds are.…they can fly freely and fast. This flock is ready to fly from the nest. Let me know what you think!
Till the next time!
