Midsummer Festival-Juhannus

 We celebrate Midsummer Festival every year between the 20th and 26th of June. It is a celebration of light and the beginning of summer. It is the time for Finns to relax and enjoy the magical 'Night less Night' when the sun doesn't go down but a few short hours.
I tried to catch the light and feeling of that in my digital picture.
I cut and cropped the lovely face of Greta Garbo (1905-1990) from a magazine. She was a Swedish born American film actress in the 1920's and 1930's. I altered her black and white photo with a color layer in the photo shop.  Other images were added and design made digitally as well.
I'm linking the work in Paint Party Friday Week 16 Year 7
wishing every one happy PPF and  
🌼 most enjoyable summer time 💕
*****
Ihanaa keskikesän juhlaa kaikille,
🌼 Hyvää Juhannusta 💕

Greta Garbon ihanat kasvo ovat lehdestä leikkaamastani musta/valkoisesta valokuvasta. Lisäsin värit ja muut kuvat photoshopissa. 
Tavoitteenani oli tavoitta kuvaan 'yöttömän yön' fiilis ja värit.

Hello Sirkkis, I love your treatment of Greta Garbo - she does have a lovely face, yes.
Thank you for explaining about the short hours of the night, and you have definitely shown that feeling in your art. It's most beautiful :D)
