I visited four art exhibitions at Helsinki last Friday. Two of the were about landscapes. Why not. Landscapes are timeless, modern and old at the same time.
Tuomo Saali at Taidesalonki had oil landscapes with small human figures. I have not fogotten his great works about toys and some abstract themes.
He is three years old, soon four years. Yes, he is a great artist. My grandson.
And I have the joy to watch him paint. Here is a fresh work by him.
My watercolours and also works by artist Irja Wilkko are to be seen at an exhibition
at Taidekeskus Väinölä Varkaus 3.10-30.10. The theme is View the landcscape.
Mallow is still flowering as the summer has been so late. This is one of the few seedlings
I took with me as we moved from Helsinki to countryside. It has so delicate pink and purplish petals.
I was attending watercolour course at Mikkeli. Artist Marjukka Paunila was our teacher.
This was the first painting I made, outside, by the lawn.
We were celebrating Finland 100 years by painting Finnish nature, flowers.
Now the paintings are at an exhibition at Lappeenranta. The place is called Kaakaopapu and the exhibition is to be seen until 8.8.2017 Monday-Friady 10-16 and Saturday-Sunday 11-15.
Saimaa Watercolourgroup (Saimaan Akvarellistit) had a live painting session
at Kenkävero Mikkeli today.
The summer day was nicest ever, the garden in full bloom.
Today was a first warm and sunny day for weeks. We went to the lake.
I took watercolours with me, he took fishing gear with him.
I got a few watercolour sketches, he got none.
It is raining day after day. Good time for doing some cleaning.
Then I found an old notebook and sketches.
