Two beams of light/ Sain lyhtyjä kaksi

2010 oil on canvas, 46x55

Primitive self-portrait. This is the other half of the song "Gracias a la vida" (Thanks to life) by my vision. You can see the other half here with my comments WHY I painted that song. Gracias a la vida by Violeta Parra has hounted my mind still... so I had to paint the melancholic side of it.

Beautiful fall comes and allures you to love her. You can't resist that vivid nature and fresh breeze. All those fallen, colorful leaves brings us a sentimental mood and a recollection from childhood games. Come, come beautiful fall and let us fall for you!

Dream trees/Unipuut

2010 acrylic on canvas 10x15 each

in private collection

I love trees and I think there's much humanity in them. They have roots and they can be big or small, they try to reach up and touch the sky and depending conditions where they grow that defines how tough they become... and so does humans. So trees have become a symbol of humans and humanity in my art.
