A few coltsfoot, that have popped up from the earth, are more yellow than the Sun, that shines through a misty cloud on its way down behind the city. Orange and purple Crocuses are awake too. The lake is melting every day more, the waves are happy and alive. Glimmering those golden rays of the one hiding shyly behind the misty clouds.

Spring Allotment, a new little garden to grow up with, for L'Affiche Moderne, is now available. Its companion painting, Garden of A Moon Gazer, is still available too. 

Spring Allotment is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland. Thank you so much!

Spring wishes!

This spring is filled with flora. Clovers, crocuses tied as grandmother's bouquet, apple blossoms blooming in Finnish fir forest. Meadows of green, forget-me-nots here and there. 

It is my pleasure to show you some of my paintings from a few years back in a new tableware collection for Narumi in Japan. It is a mix-and-match collection with bone china, with some glazed items and also with glass tumblers, the collection to be continued.

A new continent, a new big story to tell! Butterflies in my tummy! 

You can view all the items on Narumi's online store here, available now. Sorry only in Japanese!

Spring has been arriving lately with bright blue sky and warming golden sunshine. Tonight, maybe some Northern Lights appear. With a thermo bottle of hot tea and wrapped in wool I walk to stare the sky.

Arigato Narumi!

Happy spring!

Big grey clouds in the horizon, waiting new snow to arrive. Teacup in hand, window open. They sing so wildly already, opening their voices, the spring birds. Every day new sounds and more flying.

A little sneak peak to the local stores, to their collection of spring on textile and on tableware. More to tell about these soon! Secret wild gardens and summer birds.

Red Cap Cards made a small interview about me, you can read it here and here. Thank you Carrie and Andie!

Happy melodies!

February weather with blue sky, sunshine and strong winds. When the sun turns enough, first balcony afternoon coffee of the spring might happen. Wrapped in wool. And a second coffee in town with friends.

New greeting cards are available at Red Cap Cards, for every occasion. Apple Tree Love for Valentines. Hopefully you enjoy them!

Do you remember, who wrote you the first greeting card or post card? I bet, for me it was my aunt, who still sends a postcard from her every trip. Last time it was from wintery Athens. 

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy New Year 2015, many new beautiful adventures, sunshine, ocean waves and curvy roads to walk!

Happy to be back in a winter storm, skiing, drinking tea and reading your words again. Planning new adventures on painting table and around it too. While the wind covers windows in snow.
