A Stream of Tears (2007). Above is a version colorized with computer. Next to it here is the whole original pencil drawing also, 74×46 cm.

A sad yet gentle and hopeful image of a  girl sleeping in a stream of her own tears, surrounded by a misty forest. A white pigeon   her soul  flies away.

  • Girl with a pigeon seems to be one of my many reoccurring motifs also see the ending of Venus and the Dream Machine comic.
  • The image was used as a cover of my 2CD ambient album collection Kyynelten virta (2008).
  • Also used as a stamp.
