Artificial Light

Painting springPainting spring

Making plans for springtime, planning and producing Art Orienteering 2014. The time of year when the days will become longer.

In the northernmost areas of Finland the sun never rises above the horizon for about 2 months. Southern Finland has some daylight each day, though it receives only about 6 hours of daylight a day in early December.

I'm using a special bright light to avoid increased sleepiness. The light source is very powerful (10,000 lux) and usually sufficient amount of light treatment would be 30-45 minutes per day, but I’m using it while painting – 7 hours a day! I wonder if it's harmful to my eyes... :D
