I have just started exploring and learning my way of doing nature, landscapes and such. I need a lot of practice and find ways to reach the final painting. I have to work with my patience, to accept that it takes time, that there is stages I have to work through even if I want to work loose.
This is my latest painting in that journey.

A person commented on a painting a while back, and said at the same time that she would like to see me doing garlic. I did more or less promise that I would do it some day, so here it is. I loved the reference photo that I took a while back, but I wasn't thrilled about getting started with this one. But once I got into the painting, I had a lot of fun doing it.

I am working my day job, like always, but I will not feel the need to produce and post every single day. Not that it will mean that my paintings will be better for it, but I will not have to push it to get it posted.
This is a darker exploration of my favorite flower.

Another first one for me, in the double sense, since I have never eaten it before and I have never painted it before. Too be honest, haven't painted food before at all (fruits, berries etc. not included).
The food looked amazing, but I am not sure that the small parts that is showing gives the viewer enough information to recognize it, and I am not sure if I simplified all the parts in the right way. It was fun to paint at least, and I think I might try food again.... some day.

I did this one right after finished the "In the forest 1" and is in some ways a continuation of it. It is not as abstract, but still with loose and rough brush strokes.

Not for SALE
Back to nature, well Iris is part of nature, so back to the woods is more correct. I have done some Tree/forest paintings lately. This one is the first I did. Tried to keep it clean, semi-abstract and with loose brush strokes.

This one isn't new, but I thought I try the DPW auction again. The worst thing I know is to put a value on my paintings. There is several variables and reasons to raise or lower a price. It's hard to find that balance to make a painting affordable, but not to give it away.
One thing that I got against me is that since I live in Sweden I have to charge more for shipping and handling than an American painter, and most of my buyers live in the US. Just sending it cost 20$ or more depending on how much the package weighs.

This is more of an exploration than a planned and executed painting. I painted this a week ago. Even if I have done some successful landscape paintings, they have like most of my artwork been a close-up study where I have been able to use my line work. If things are more distant, I need to find a way to do it my way, but also a way to get looser and even loose the line.
