Birds singing in a summer forest after a refreshing rain, the sun starts to glimmer on every leaf and flower again. The bird songs grow stronger and wilder. Peace is around.

My colleague, wonderful illustrator and comic artist JP Ahonen made a website that sells original drawings and paintings and a few prints. All income will be donated to the Red Cross to aid their work in helping asylum seekers during the Syrian conflict.

This is a detail of a bigger painting, In Forest, that was a commissioned painting for Mirando Bok in Sweden. The original painting is also now available there. The site has collected already more than 10000€, and hopefully soon even more!

Please have a look, and help at:

1. freedom from disturbance; tranquillity.
2. a state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended

Peace to everyone!

Hello September!

Gardens still bloom, meadows are filled with dragon flies near to the lakes. Every possible minute outdoors, sleeping under stars, watching full Moon and Aurora Borealis on dark sky. The cool misty mornings are swept away slowly with sunshine and warmth, until the evening cools everything to perfect temperature, to woollen cardigan weather.

A few new prints available in the small online shop! Meadow Path, that can be coloured in, Tree Village with blue evening moments, Butterfly Branches to savour the last summer moments and Buttercups to think of the new coming spring.

The Tree Village and Butterfly Branches were made with the kind support from Arts Promotion Centre Finland. Thank you for the support!

Long walks, warming drinks, starlight!
