It was an amazing summer day today and we went to the lake by boat. I sketched with watercolours the cliffs on the shores. I like fresh green colours against the cliffs.
At last summer is here: light, heat and bright colors!
Finally it is warm enough to go out with watercolors to sketch cliffs, trees, bushes. One can see fresh light green from birches.
It is so cold outside. I took a small blueberry branch to the vase at home. It began to bloom.
Only daffodils are blooming. No leaves in the bearches, blueberries.
Daffodils 2020. Oil pastels 43 x 43 cm.
I am waiting for sun and heat. For buds in the trees. Just one moment yet.
One can get fresh tee by collecting small juniper branches and adding them to boiling water.
The old master, Toivo Rautavaara, says in his book Miten luonto parantaa(“How nature can heal us”) that juniper branches have the most amount of vitamin C at this time of year. No viruses.
