Its a snow blizzard outside so I escaped the reality by browsing thru some reference photos from the summer. I took a bit looser style with this one and used a lot of paint! Super fun!
I got this 100 years old frame from my mother in law. The frame needed a lot of restoring and I also painted it totally black. It also needed a custom sized canvas that I streched in it. It was fun experiment to paint directly to already framed canvas.
I have been super busy with the new born and also in the visual FX work that our company Talvi does. But finally I found time to push some paint around! I am not sure if this is totally finished, maybe i blur a few edges tomorror.. :)
Its good be back in Finland and today here was a very windy day. It's not good for landscape painter but i trusted my easy-L easel and piled a couple of big heavy rocks for extra support.
Clouds were passing by super fast and I waited until I saw these wonderful cumulus clouds.
There was a long queue outside of the Greenacres Gallery. I think everyone from Wexford town entered the show!
