BLANKETS AND WINTER´S SEA







Dear Thursday,

Some snow and snow clouds that I collected from my older journeys for you. Feel soft inside them! I keep my hands busy, did not have the time to go to buy a Name Day flower today. But tomorrow. Stepping from the arctic weather inside a flower shop feels like entering a rain forest. Tomorrow I can imagine the wild animals laughing up in the trees of colors.

Evening greetings of soft piano tunes and lullabying snow covers,

Anna Emilia

(The painting is for a poem called Alda Aldanna, by S. The photos are taken in Iceland the year 2004
and 2005 while climbing Upsafjall in Dalvík and from airplane while flying over Vatnajökull.)

  1. Lovely photos - makes me nostalgic for the old 70s geography books we used to look though in school. I would like to visit Iceland, one day.

  16. Dear Anna Emilia, thank you so much for your nice comment and sharing those snowy images. They seem so quiet so calm. This is something I miss right now being here in Summer. The calmness of Winter...The everything goes a little slower and you have more time to sit in front of a candle wrapped in a blanked, knitting or just thinking. Summer is so much more active. It is great to get some Winter on your blog...I enjoy it a lot. Have a wonderful evening. Maria

    Dear Denise: The poem is by my friend. One day I want to illustrate the other parts of it too, then maybe I can show it to everyone!

    Dear Maria: And I feel warm in your summer (:

  19. Kuinka kaunis maalaus! Aaltojen valtava voima, katsellessa alkaa hassusti huimata. Onko tasta mahdollisesti tulossa printteja kauppaasi? Mina ripustaisin tuon maiseman kernaasti seinalleni!
