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.

Flower Exploration 34





I know I should be posting more often, but life takes all the time right now, and painting.

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.

Forest Exploration 22






This is a small landscape/forest painting, part of my attempt to find new paths to explore.

Flower Exploration 22



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.

Flower Exploration 24


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.

Forest Exploration 21


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.

Flower Exploration 25



This is one of my favorite flower paintings and I think it's partly because it came from a place where I tried new colors & went for it.
