Yesterday, 12th of April, my small company turned one year old. Company, where only I work and where I only work with illustration. (Thank you mum for making my bookkeeping and tax reports!) Little I knew a year ago, but it became all possible. There has been so many heart-touching persons, always interesting commissions, long conversations, very few phone calls but thousands of emails over the seas, mountains, oceans, wilderness. Through all the seasons and weather. And it all has made me so happy. Deeply I thank every one of you who has been there supporting me with commissions, orders, emails, letters, parcels, comments or lately even saying hello in the towns that I walk or bicycle. Thank you, thank you so much.
It has been wonderful and I make my best to do it again this year. With you.
Dear Jill made a small interview with me and I painted a little something about what I saw that day.
These photos are from August 2007, after my last summer in Iceland. The first one is from my grandparents´ garage which never saw a car, but a lot of strawberries. The other ones are from my home town, the three last ones from the summerhouse of my parents. In the last one I am washing the dishes. I wish all the places were as clean as that lake.
More days to color landscapes, to walk and see.
All the pictures are taken by S.
So beautiful landscapes. OF these photos gets free a lot of serenity !ReplyDelete
My grand mother is danish and when she was child she lives near a lake, and when i try to imagine with her words, it can be like that !
All my greetings from France and St Paul ;)
Congratulations and many more wonderful years to come! The second photo is fantastic by the way, beautiful light!ReplyDelete

Do you wash the dishes in the lake??!! It has to be a very clean lake!
When I was in Brazil (in a rural zone) people drink water directly from the river... It also have a very clean and transparent water...
happy birthday company! here in germany it feels so strange not to have to start a company in the way we do in finland and sweden. i got my tax number the other day and it's not just mine - it's johan's as well. it came a bit as a shock, it's like we're one person.ReplyDelete
good luck with another year together with your company :) hugs from berlin.
Onnea onnistuneesta yksivuotis-taipaleesta! :) Kuvia katsellessa kaipuu kesään sen kuin yltyy. Haastattelu oli kiva lukea. Oon seuraillut sun blogia jo tovin, vaikka aiemmin en ole tainnut kommentoida. Sulla on ihana tyyli kuvata asioita, sekä kuvin että sanoin. Yksi lemppari blogeistani. :)ReplyDelete
