Greetings from Finland! This winter I didn't get to see and feel a real winter only once, but twice! And there is quite some whirly snowfall outside while I am writing this. I love winter and snow and ice... I do complain when it is slippery outside, but I love it anyway!

My visit home this time is on a more somber note. My father in law passed away. It is still very unreal somehow. I know it is the way of life, but we had all thought that he would have had at least a few more years amongst us. For the moment there is not much I can say, except for rest in peace Reima!

It is not helping that I am going away for a week on Friday either... But dead-lines are good, I need dead-lines to get work done, so it is all good!

I have been experimenting with my backgrounds, and for this series of paintings I am getting very excited! I love when that happens. I wanted something a little bit simpler, and I am loving the textures! Now I have so many more ideas in my head that I want to get down on can…
