|These birch trees are right outside our kitchen window. We walk by them everyday. |

|Gah! I can hardly stand it!!!! |
(OK, I didn't actually take this picture, but I've sure seen this scene a lot!)

One of our goals in coming to Finland was to find a piece of artwork to bring home and put up in our living room. There's a big, empty space just waiting for some Finnish beauty. We have looked and looked and just haven't found anything. So I decided to make my own... I'm calling it my "art project." I think we will choose 9 of the following pictures (and possibly more to come) and hang them in a 3 x 3 collage with simple frame. I'm having so much fun watching the birch trees as I walk around town, looking for my next close up.
Which ones are your favorites?
Stay tuned for my next art project: Moss on Rocks.
