In the beginning of my ownership of Lillan I of course got checked the conduits of it. The chimney did not work well. The chimney sweeper came to help. He found out that jackdaws had at some point made their nest in the chimney. Because the pipe is old and curvy, he could not get the nest out the easy way. He had to make a hole in the corner to get the chimneys clean. Thus, the grey spot after building the wall back.
Time went by and one day an artist stayed at Lillan during her display arrangements. I really do like her style and ideology behind her art. Even wrote a post of her joyful illustrations.
We became friends.
One day, she posted this picture on her Facebook wall. She had visited an old Italian cloister and there had been these centuries old paintings.
I came up with an idea – and Sanna was happy to play along.
The chimney wall of the Lillan upstairs bedroom got fixed and everything was ready for her to work her artistic magic there.
When I saw the first lines she had drawn there I knew I had made the right decision: this would be so perfect! So Lillan style. So much more than just a cover for a chimney corner.
All those amazing, vivid and yet fragile details. In perfect harmony with Lillan atmosphere.
Now, you can spend your time at Lillan in the shade of these wonderfully eloquent branches.
Or almost hear the water spatter at the fountain, with the bird just watching you, estimating if it would dare to take a bath even though you are there.
Thank you Sanna. You are such a great talent. I’m so proud to have this painting by you in Lillan.
Lillan has stayed on its place nearly 300 years. I expect it to stay there at least next 300 years, now with your art on its wall.
