I was visiting 90th anniversary exhibition of Finnish Painters´ Association at art museum Lahti.
I especially liked the wonderful watercolors by artist Senja Vellonen (above and below).
The exhibition is open until 2.12. 2018.

In the past even this plant ( Stagshorn, Lycopodium clavatum, katinlieko) has been used for weaving small objects as trivets (pannunalunen).
Lichen looks like jewel.
Walking in the forest is like walking in a three-dimensional art work. One can also focus on small objects from nature. Soili Arha is internationally known artist who makes her own art from nature. The examples are from larger works in the book Tekstiilitaidetta luonnosta (Textile art from nature. Soili Arha and Teija Isohauta. Maahenki 2015).
