Sanctum

This series of forestscapes is special in that from the beginning I had the intention to depict forest. The paintings are an expression of my respect and gratitude for the great healing power of nature. I painted them on the wooded islands of Suvisaaristo, where I stayed for six months after a great loss. They are painted with water from the Baltic Sea.
