This "Tall and Lovely" artwork by Raija is one of the beautiful paintings we have enjoyed here at Blackberry Junction. We are very honored to have another artist join us this season. Raija was born in Finland, lived in Canada, and moved with her family to Oregon in 1968. She started painting and taking classes 22 years ago. Raija works in acrylic and oil-painting on canvas, fabric, Christmas ornaments, glass, and watercolor paper. She has painted many murals in local schools, businesses, and private homes. Her work has appeared at Bush Barn and the Oregon State Fair. She has some wonderful pieces left and many happy customers have taken several home to enjoy! Thank you Raija!
