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.....

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.

This is the result of my letting loose, pushing my limits, doing something else to mix things up....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

This is one of my small size flower exploration paintings. I have a lot of fun with these. They are small but large enough for me to spread my wings, if you know what I mean.

I am so behind showing what I have done, but too busy painting, a blessing in disguise. This painting is the result of being inspired by what I do. I saw a detail in a painting, and wonder how it would look as a separate painting.

This is another painting in the "Flower Exploration" series. I still do landscape/tree paintings, but I will continue with these too, still think that I can take them further, have more to give.

This is the painting right now that inspire most when it comes to trees and landscapes. The problem for me is to not overthink it, not trying to replicate something that was pure instinct and confidence over my own ability.
