Today I would like to introduce you to an artist whose Instagram feed provides me with a beautiful interlude to my day. Introducing Heidi Hjort. I met Heidi two years ago when I taught a workshop in Finland. I fell in love with her work and was thrilled to find her on Instagram.
Here is an excerpt from Heidi's website:
"I’m an oil painter from Vaasa, Finland. My art is about Everyday Beauty as I believe that the mundane and the sacred are one and the same. I’m fascinated by the Impermanence of Beauty and how everything is in constant change. It’s an incredible reminder of how short life is and great reason to live each day to the fullest."
I invite you to visit her website www.heidihjort.com and her Instagram feed @heidihjort
Below I am sharing an excerpt from my blog post during my workshop in Finland. It brings back some wonderful memories of a special place and time.
Here are a few photos from the summer house in Vaasa. This is our home base. Our host, Annika is absolutely wonderful! She is making us delicious meals and lots of coffee. She even managed to do three beautiful paintings on the first day. Here are some photos of the summer house property.
