Artwork of the Week: The Lost Socks

I don't know where I found this image, or who is responsible for it's creation, but I've had it saved among my files for some time now and my mind often returns to it. I responded to the colors initially—the stripes of bright green and shocks of turquoise, with that one pop of pale pink nestled among them, hung next to a white cloud with all of its subtle differences in color, both set against the somber gray of the sky reflected in the water. But what I really appreciate about it is the manipulation of the material, a conglomeration of everyday objects juxtaposed in such a placid natural setting; almost surreal, yet still familiar. A support group for lost socks in a veritable no man's land. If anyone knows who it was that made this piece, please tell me!

UPDATE: It's artist Anu Tuominen! And it's called For Winter Nights
