Shapes & Movement 40

I tried to keep this rougher than usual, not clean up too much too soon. I like the flow in painting.
It is a delicate balance, letting go and having control, know where you are going and letting the process/painting showing the way. It is so easy to rush things and to think too much. I think I was able to keep the balance in this one.

Shapes & Movement 41 (On the wall)

Here is a couple of pictures of my latest painting displayed in my kitchen. It is my way to give the viewer a more correct experience of the painting. Art on Internet is a tricky thing. Browsing around, looking at art, gives no sense of size. Small paintings looking bigger than they are and large paintings looking small (showing no details).

Shapes & Movement 41

It was time to push myself again, go outside my comfort zone, push my limits. The hard part is to know where to go and keep some objectivity to what one is doing. Well, I like where it ended up.

Shapes & Movement 38

This one is a continuation of "Shapes & Movement 37". It isn't a copy, but a variation of the concept, with the same color scheme. The overall impression of it is that it is less "dark" & "moody".

Shapes & Movement 42

This is my smallest abstract painting to date. It became more complexed than I expected, considering the size. The result is a playful painting.

Shapes & Movement 37

I try to take reference photos of my large paintings, to show the size. The light this time of year isn't ideal, but here it is.....

Shapes & Movement 39

This one was inspired by the previous paintings in this series and the favorite colors of a collector. This is a good example of a painting that painted itself. I trusted my skill and judgment and had some fun. I really like this one, one of my favorites at this moment.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 49

This is the smallest and cutest bird's nest painting I have done. I painted it a few months ago, but never got around to post it. Something else got posted instead and then I took my long break. Not easy to work that small space with my kind of style, but I think I made it work.

Flower Abstraction 148

This is one of those paintings that was done a while ago, but haven't been posted. I was experimenting at the time, having a lot of fun using different kinds of acrylic paint.

Shapes & Movement 37

Sometimes a painting opens up opportunities, give inspiration for a concept or for further paintings. This one really inspire me and it has already been the inspiration for new paintings. I don't know if I will put it up for sale or not, at least not right away.

Flower Abstraction 159

I usually do single flower compositions on small panels, but I wanted to experiment with the colors and textures and went a little larger than usual. The result is a distinct flower on a vibrant background.

Shapes & Movement 36

This is a small continuation painting that is based on what I did with "Shapes & Movement 34". Usually I go small first and then larger, but not this time. I wondered how it would like if I went more "nature" with the colors.

Shapes & Movement 35


This is an abstract that came from pushing myself outside of my comfort zone, using more white than usually.
I let go and I like it.

Floral Abstraction 158


I did this dark flower recently and I love it. I also went a little more contrast with the background and the painting in the whole have given me some ideas.

Shapes & Movement 34

Last painting was had a very specific color scheme and look. I tried to go the opposite with this one, taking inspiration from nature, but going in an abstract way. I can finally say that I am back painting and having some fun again.
