Early spring evening in Helsinki

This is great, Satu. The abstract feel, the gorgeous greys/yellows make it very atmospheric. The type of painting that I really like (though find it difficult to do myself)!

Nice work Satu well done i love the sea.

Simple yet so very effective, very classy!

I like this painting very much, colours and composition

What a fantastic picture! Dynamic, and wonderful colour.

Fabulous, very unusual subject, love the style, great stuff Satu.

Wonderful Satu! There is such a feeling of distance in this and the colours in the melting snow remind me of the colours of the Northern Lights.

Thank you very much Pat , Dennis, Debs, Helen, Shirley, Alan and Sarah for your lovely comments! Very much appreciated!

Fantastic Satu!! Love those small touches of blue.

Oh ,oh not still got snow Satu.... ? A very abstract feel to this...but very satisfying.

Many thanks Fiona, Glennis and Sylvia! Sylvia, the photo was taken in March so no snow any more.

You've created such a serene yet striking image - those little specks of turquoise are inspired - love it

It's a smashing piece Satu. Love it.

I have lost o lot of enthusiasm for this site and not bothering to post anymore - but pictures like this would soon get me back in the groove. Love it Satu.

Please, Michael come back, we all miss you!!!!! I'm sure that you have done some wonderful paintings and drawings and drift wood things and I would love to see them. The site is not the same without you! X

Truly beautiful atmosphere and colour Satu.
