Dried river

"Dried River"

I painted this a while ago. Then it was really dry and still quite warm.
Now the temperatures are starting to drop and we are rapidly heading into the "real" winter kind of weather. I am looking foward to see some snow covered landscapes soon.
Its always a super fun challenge to do the seasons very first snow painting.

Bulevardi 7 - Gallen-Kallela and Simberg exhibition

Gallen-Kallela and Simberg exhibition
on Bulevardi 7

If you happen to be anywhere near the vicinity of Helsinki, I suggest you check out this rare collection of works by these great Finnish painters.

Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865 – 1931)
Hugo Simberg (1873 - 1917)

Gallery was totally packed.

For everyones suprise - The painter himself gave us a visit!
Just kidding, the gentleman here is actually well known Finnish actor.

And because i havent posted anything since my harddrive melted
here is a few works in progress shots.
