I found this nice impressionist painting few days ago at my local thrift store.
Made by a Finnish artist by the name "ESA", very nice addition to my collection
ESA, Finnish(Canadian), Impressionist. Acrylic on Canvas
I and my family moved from Finland to Toronto over 45 years ago, where we lived for many years. I began to participate in Toronto and other southern Ontario art shows. Later, we moved to Northern Ontario in order to be closer to nature, built a house and an art gallery, where I exhibited and sold my art work. Those were wonderful years in the eighties and our gallery was very busy, due to so many tourists that used to visit the area in those years. When our daughters became of college age, we moved “back south” to Lake Simcoe. Currently we live in Port Colborne, where I have a studio gallery. I have authored visual arts teaching books in series: Esa’s Art Designs and over the years my art work and designs have been published in many art magazines in North America. Last 15 years I have been teaching Creative Arts Seminars. The goal is to teach art students to expand their painting range and capabilities in the process of creating art. I also exhibit my art in one-man and group art shows.
