Nature Walks and Chocolate Cake

(Two of the most excellent things about Fiskars Village, Finland.)
Well, an art blog is
supposed to turn into a "travelogue" when you're on sabbatical, right? Yeah, I guess so.

The view from my window about two and a half weeks ago, after our first snow.

Hobbitty grass in the woods.

Pink granite and pale fluffy mosses on a nature trail just up from the residency house.


More delicate fluffy mosses and lichen-covered trees.

Life indoors is pretty good here too.Here's me and the other Fiskars artist resident, Laura Baruel Poulsen, at the new Fiskars chocolate shop. The cake, which is mind-blowing, did not last long enough to make it into the picture.
