Grey day's eve/Harmaan päivän aatto

2009, oil on canvas 30x40

Sometimes something unpleasant is coming and you know it and you know there's nothing to stop it. You just have to wait it's arrival and wear it.

Mornings are the worst/Pahimpia ovat aamut

2009, oil on canvas 60x80

I'm not at my best in the mornings. Usually awakening takes a moment or two ;) and my body feels tense.

The name of the picture is from Maija Vilkkumaa's song. Maija Vilkkumaa is a Finnish singer and and songwriter. I'm not a big fan but this song "totuutta ja tehtävää" has so witty lyrics. They tell about one night, one moment when small group of people are playing truth or dare. Chorus goes something like this: 
"And the mornings are the worst
of which end you can not see
I always fear that they get me 
and so finally it is" 

Listen "totuutta ja tehtävää" here.
