At Kaitalampi


I had time to paint a little bigger painting on my last summer vacation days. The location in this painting is a nearby lake where open water swimmers like to train, because it's long and narrow. It's safer to swim close to shore. Kaita = narrow, lampi = pond/lake.

Oil on canvas, 90x70 cm

I took some work-in-progress shots of this, too:

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Paintings


I enjoyed looking at the paintings at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen last month.
I hope you enjoy these photos I took of a few of them! Speaking of photos, all of the museums I visited in Copenhagen allowed photography, as long as flash was not used.
It's a shame that's not possible in Finnish National Gallery.
