Daily Life, Flower Pots, Sirkka Jalava

Now I have filled several pots with plants I had on my porch.  Some pots are allready out  like this here, which is placed by the entrance way. Most of the pots  are waiting in the greenhouse some days more. But soon they´ll be out too.
I hope this my little break in posting has been a creative break and am sure I will soon be enthusiastic for sketching and painting  again.

  4. Sirkka, what a wonderful wide and far-ranging view! It reminds me for some reason of a beautiful castle garden. I can feel the distance in your painting.

    1. Thank you, Margaret! You are not so wrong, the whole this island has in 1200ies and some centuries later been a hunting area for the swedish kings. There is a castle too, but some kilometers far away from here. But all this is history, not today.

    3. PS what is the name of the island where you live?

    4. Margaret, the island is named Åland (Aland islands), it contents a group of islands between Finland and Sweden where the Baltic Sea, Gulf of Finland and Gulf of Bothnia meet.
