Flower Abstraction 205

We are not there yet, but I am looking forward to the coming season change. I painted a lot of small flower paintings last summer/autumn and I still got some to post. This one is a little looser than usual, went outside my comfort zone.

Spring preperation - New Fence in the front.

 Old fence, built by the previous owner. 

 It is very "wonky" and is leaning towards our neighbor. 

 The fence stripped down.

I don't know if the spring is here yet, but it is going to be warmer and the snow will melt away. I have removed most of the fence in the front of our house. We will build the new fence next week if the weather are right for it.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 77

Happy Valentine's day everyone!

The subject of today's post isn't typical for a day like this, but the colors are. I did a similar one earlier, but extended the composition and format.

This is one of my abstract paintings where I reduce color, not totally black and white, but scaling down to one color one additional color.

Autumn Berry Abstraction 26

This is another one of my autumn berry paintings that I did last year. I usually go for one subject that are fun to do and I keep painting them as long as I feel that I contribute something. As soon as I get the feeling that I am on repeat, then I move on.

Shapes & Movement 83

This is an non-figurative abstract painting that I did a while back. It has a limited pallette, but with a lot of values, making it very much alive.

Flower Abstraction 189

Spring has to wait a little longer, but it's not that far away until the garden wakes up. Time to make plans and do preparations. I still got flowers to show though.

Shapes & Movement 88

This is a small abstract painting, slightly inspired by flowers. I could have included it in my "flower" series, but I thought it was closer to non-figurative.

Flower Abstraction 222

This is flower painting that I did a while back, changing things up with a different format, not the usual square.The bright colors make me think of summer.

Shapes & Movement 103

This is one of those paintings that painted itself. I'm not sure if it is the red dominant color scheme, but I really like this one a lot.

Shapes & Movement 74

This painting came from a very direct approach and I didn't overthink things. There is a fine balance between rough and polished and I am happiest when I find it. This one landed on the rougher side, but I had control enough to make it work.

Flower Abstraction 199

I painted this one a while back and it was a little different from what I did back then. I is kind of moody in a way, with it's limited color pallette, but at the same time very vibrant with it's warm colors.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 75

This isn't the most colorful or most abstract bird's nest painting that I have done, the color choice make it look more natural, but I like it anyway.

Shapes & Movement 82

This is an abstract painting with a limited color pallette.The only colors I used was black, white and yellow. I haven't decided what paintings I will show during Easter, only that the focus will be on small paintings, with some additional medium and large paintings. All paintings that I post are available to buy, but I will not provide any buy link. If interested, contact me instead.

Shapes & Movement 101

One learn more from some paintings than others. I learned a lot from this one. I had a lot of fun exploring and the process is based on organized chaos. I played with shapes, colors and brush strokes, guided by the process in itself.
This painting is likely to be included in my Easter Exhibition. If you are interested in it, feel free to contact me.
