I found this wallpaper while browsing in op shops in Karja. It’s got a nice old fashioned feel that seemed to fit Karja. I thought I was going to use the back for drawing on, but as you can see I’ve used the patterned side for this charcoal drawing of a small island in one of the lakes. After walking through the forest for some time to get there, I was surprised to see this small island was host to three or four summer houses (in the usual red and white colour scheme). It looked very idyllic indeed. I hope the drawing on wallpaper suggests the idea of cosy homeliness nestled into the landscape.

I’ve taken to drawing with ink and a skewer over the last week (no real reason, except the previous artist left some drawing ink behind, and the first likely implement that came to hand was some bamboo skewers in the kitchen drawers, this being the way artistic choices sometimes get made). I loved the fluidity of this scene, where the undulating land, patches of forest and irregularly shaped cultivated fields intersect.
