Flower Abstraction 242

Still painting, mixed results. The thing that I lost not painting for so long is the balance between control and let go. This is a simply flower, but has a lot of details. That works for this one, but more complex compositions, I need to find the detail balance, easy to get too busy.

Flower Abstraction 241

When life happens, somethings have to change, which meant for me that I had to focus on other things than paint. I haven't painted for 2 years. I have tried to get it going a few times, but it wasn't in the cards.
I hope I can get going now, a slow start, but I have to work on balance between control and expression. This is a small starter, back to basics.

Flower Abstraction 237

Well... not painting again..... am in the process of moving to a new house, packing and getting ready takes priority. This is one small paintings that I did as a way to "get back to painting" a while ago.

I guess that I have to start that process again, in our new house..... and hopefully sooner than later.

I wish you all a Happy & Creative New Year.

Flower Exploration 43

I can't say that I am totally into painting again, but I am satisfied with the things I have done. Large new versions, variations of earlier concepts/paintings. It is so easy that they lack the spontaneity and doesn't live up to the previous ones, but I am glad that they did.
This is a large painting with abstract flowers in a vase. It has a limited color pallette.

Flower Abstraction 240

It has been a while... again. I was just getting back to painting again, when my life took a 180 degree turn and painting were no longer on the table.

We are soon moving, sold the our current house and bought a new one, starting from scratch again, but that is a good thing. This time we are going to plan our garden from the perspective of having 2 active Whippet dogs.

I have started painting again, mixed results, but I am going in the right direction.

This is one of my largest paintings that I have done and is a continuation of my flower abstraction concept.

Landscape Exploration 37

It has been a while since I posted anything, in fact it has been even longer since I hold a brush and painted something. I decided to take a break from painting, things around me was more important and I wanted to focus on that. When things around me calmed down and I was able to focus more on myself, additions to our family took priority. Within two months we bought two "Whippet" puppies, Zune (now almost 7 months old, fawn and white) and Brage (7 weeks younger, brindle) a lot of joy and a lot of work.
I am back painting again and will hopefully continue with it. I still got paintings left to post from before my break, so I will mix old and new paintings in future posts.

I start with a painting that I did last year and two pictures of our dogs.....

Flower Exploration 41

This is a more complex flower exploration painting. How detailed/complex a painting become depend when I think it is done. The risk with that method is to go too far, to over work it. I think that it worked out well this time.

Landscape Exploration 30

I have been exploring and painting landscapes/trees a lot, more or less abstract. I have worked without reference, going with my instinct. I will use photos for references and ideas, but for now I have focused on the shapes of the trees, trying out things.

Flower Exploration 19

This might be the last post this year, or I might squeeze one more in before New Year. This is the third painting of 3 that I did with white background, keeping it clean, direct and no margin for errors.
Every brush stroke is visible and final, no corrections. I added some more colors in this one.

Flower Exploration 32

This is one of my favorite paintings in my "Flower Exploration" series. It is simple, but full of details. I especially like the "wallpaper" background, it really worked well.

I am experience life at the moment, good and bad. Still painting, but I never seem to get to posting them. This is a small painting in my flower exploration series.

Flower abstraction 236

I have moved on from flowers in vases, at least for the moment. While I did them, I mixed things up  with other subjects and concepts. This is more of an abstract, inspired by the more traditional flower paintings. It is good to push things.

Landscape Exploration 28

The majority of my paintings are still flower explorations, but I do mix things up with exploring trees and landscapes too. I haven't reached the point yet, but planning to do a large landscape painting, the largest so far.
This is a small landscape I did a wile ago. I am trying to find the balance between loose and structure.

Flower Exploration 29

This is one of the small flower paintings. What I like about it is the simple composition and the color combination.
