Came across this and thought it was just so simple that it was fantastic! Got it home and realized that the sticker on back looks to be russian (at least I think so), but I cannot figure out how to work the dang translator online :( Anybody know what it says? Not even sure how to classify this one, so I will put it under folk art unless told otherwise!

    Technically it is not Russian, although it is in Cyrillic.
    It's in Karelian a former republic near the Finland Russian border.
    The artist is perhaps G. Izmajlova. The title is "on Water". Above that is "A Karelian souvenir"
    I think it says "experimental mixed media".
