The depth of winter

Now it has been freezing cold ouside. More and more snow. It is a perfect time to read

a good book. I have been reading Paratiisi  (Paradise) by Eastonian writer Tonu Onnepalu.

His first book Border State by pseudonyn Emil Tode was translated in 14 languages.

Merry Christmas

“Joy to the world, the Lord has come! “.  These words are from an old Christmas song

from the year 1718, written by Isaac Watts.

I got watercolour pigments as Christmas present: two greens and bright red. As there was

a withered rose on the Christmas table, I had a good excuse to try these wonderful Sennelier pigments right away. The paper is thin  and cheap watercolor paper from local store.
