New painting called sunflower. I think this will be the last painting for 2009.
And by the way... I just graduated recently fro
m Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences.
I have now two Bachelor degrees. One in art/graphic design (graduated 2004) and the other one in business information technology. All in all I've studied about 20 years of my life. I think I'm done now.

I have more free time now so that means there will be more paintings :)
that's why I feel so sunny :D

My photo in a travel magazine

Earlier this year I participated in a travel photo competition. There was also a section for photos taken in Finland. I submitted a few photos, but did not win :(

This week however I discovered my photo in a travel magazine and turns out it was among the best photos of the competition after all :)

I scanned the magazine page. My photo is the dock photo.

Masuimi Max painting

A long time ago I did a painting of Masuimi Max. I finally send it to Masuimi and now the painting appeared on her site. I'm happy :)

Take a look:


Masuimi is one of the greatest models out there. She is an endless source of poses.
I think I'll have to paint her more and do a better painting.

I took a day off

I took a day off from my job and worked on my thesis today. I will soon graduate as a Bachelor of information technology. I am already Bachelor of art. Yes, I’m proud of my degrees :D

But while I’m working on my thesis I can’t help but dreaming of future art projects I want to do. I have so many ideas in my head and so little time. But even with little time you can do a lot… here is a collection of fast crazy doodles I have done:


I have not even updatet everything online, that I’ve done :D there is much more to come.

New painting: Frost

Thank god it's friday! I painted today and the painting turned out pretty ugly. I started looking through unfinished paintings and found a nearly complete painting I had earlier dismissed. Now it seemed okey and I knew what I had to do to it. I had used whites and browns for the painting. Now I added a very thin uneven layer of bluish paint on top of it, and the new colour saved the earlier dismissed painting.
Tomorrow I will check out the "Return of birdsong" http://miljaviita.blogspot.com/

3D max exam day

Today I had a 3D Studio Max exam at school. It was fun although I'm not very good at it yet.
But all creative things are fun. Maybe I'll learn to think more dimensions :~D

Here is a silly little room I did...

My first blog entry

Sometimes I'm lazy updating my own website (which by the way I've had for about 4 years now). So I have decided to write every now and then my little art blog. A blog gives me more freedom than my own site. Instead of just posting my own work I might link to intresting art sites I come across etc. But first, let me post some of my own works here:

My website: http://www.nadja-art.com/
