Midsummer's Dream

Midsummer's Dream

I love silver birches. Different colours , interesting shapes, lively painting. Enjoy your holiday Satu.

Another gorgeous painting Satu. The soft colour scheme is lovely, and I really like the strong composition of the tree trunks. A most effective painting. I hope you have lovely weather for your holiday, and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Hallo again, Satu - and now I have a chance to apologise for assuming you're a man! Don't know why I did, actually - it's interesting, because it makes one wonder whether there's something recognizably male or female about approaches to painting: I've never really thought there was, but perhaps others disagree... Anyway: another completely individual painting from you here - a very graceful treatment.

Beautiful work Satu!

Remarkable picture good texture works well.

This is beautiful Satu - great colours, shapes and textures and just so evocative of birch woodland.

You really do encourage me to have a go with my palette knives Satu, this is another wonderful result.

The composition and palette show great harmony and the resiult is superb Satu

This is beautiful Satu. I love the sharp abstract marks and what they imply, beautiful trees. Great cool colours too.

Oh, this is a beautiful work! - I love the marks suggesting form and the harmonious colours - reminds me of Cezanne

Sylvia, Julie, Robert, Louise, Pete, Jane, Fiona, Michael, Glennis, Carole and Jane. Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging comments!

Hello Satu. This is a beautiful painting. The lovely gentle colours and abstract feel - stunning.

Gorgeous! Such subtle colours and textures - this leapt off the screen at me. Super work.

They said it all, Satu. I just can add that I agree completely. Super. Like Robert, I didn't know if the name Satu was female or ... Your style is so strong. I am glad Robert answered my doubt with his comment. :) Mia

Thank you so much Mary-Jane, Kirstie, Thea and Mia for your kind comments. Much appreciated!

I've missed some posts Satu. Another great painting, I love your compostiions

Absolutely stunning, Satu! Love the colors, the atmosphere, the shapes, everything!

Sarah, Petra and Seok, THANK YOU!

Better late than never Satu! Of your three latest I think this is my favourite. Birches are delicate trees and you 've depicted them perfectly. Slightly cubist approach...you've done a great job here. Is it one that's sold?

Thank you Avril! Yes, this sold first and then The Migrating Birds. I have been so lucky this year.

Hang on Studio Wall

This is the wiev from my kitchen window in Finland where I'm spending two lovely months every summer. I used the big palette knife again on MDF board. 60cm x 60cm. Greetings to all my POL friends!
