Helsinki based artist Jonna Pohjalainen spent a summer at an environmental art workshop, where she would sit quietly taking in the rural landscape, sharpening her pencils and watching the sun set.  She was instantly inspired to turn grey aspen logs into an enormous and charming sculpture, titled Colour Pencils.  In turn, she’s inspired me to want to paint the tips of tepee poles.
