Apple Abstraction 30



After a long break like this, around 4 months, it is hard to get back where I were. I think it is because I am a different painter today, going with instinct, intuition and expression. I have to find the moment where I find myself back om my journey.

Well, baby steps.... 

This is a small expressive apple abstraction that I like a lot. It is clean, expressive and have my personal touch to it.

Flower Abstraction 231



There is a lot of trial and error going on right now. It takes time to find the balance between patience and spontaneity, detail and simplicity and finding out what works right now. Depending on mood and where I am at the moment does matter. It can influence what size and subject that works best at that time.

This is a small flower abstraction I did to get going and get a feel about what works and what I feel like.

Landscape Exploration 21



This is a painting to get things going. I used a slightly used canvas-board, not a clean slate, but it allowed me to work without expectations. It is rough, but I made it work.

Flower Abstraction 232




I have started to paint again .....

To get into it I used some familiar and fun subjects to paint, with focus on having fun and experimenting. This small flower painting isn't a drastic change, but the process was slightly different.

Shapes & Movement 93



It has been a while since I did some serious painting, but I think that can be a good thing. I feel that I am looking forward to get starting again, to explore new paths, getting ideas about what I want to explore.

I did this one earlier, but never got around to post it.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 81



This is a painting that I did earlier this year. It was a painting that started out well, went worse and ended up a little rough, but looking great.

Shapes & Movement 97




A while back, I was asked of a friend of mine to do some black/white paintings. When I started to paint and draw, a long time ago, I only worked in black and white. Perhaps that is the reason that I love colors so much now.

Anyway, I thought it would be a challenge and did some small paintings, mostly black and white, sometimes with a small hint of color.
This one has a hint of yellow in it, to give it a warm feeling. I enhanced that feeling with a yellow frame. Available with frame, give me a message if you want it without.

Flower Abstraction 229


 Frame included (optional)




I should be painting right now, but late spring and garden work has taken up my time. I am looking forward to start painting again and I have some ideas what subject I will focus on.

This is a painting that I painted a while back and fit very well with the coming season. One might find something in the gardens right now, that remind of this painting.

Healthy Snacks 12


I realized when I posted an old favorite of mine on Instagram, that it seem that I never posted it on my blog, or elsewhere. Probably because I did a few versions, especially close-ups of the same set up.

I really like this one too, because it is larger and a little "over the top".

Garden progress - Spring 2017

We have done a lot of work with the front part of our garden. Have removed 50-75% of the old bushes, changed the layout and planted new "stuff". The spring has just arrived here in the south of Sweden, many bushes and trees has starting to get leaves and/or flowers, but need some more time before they show their glory. There is also a lot of flowers coming up from the ground, but it will take some time before they bloom.







The rest of our garden has some new additions, finished path, added a few new plants. Over all the back was done a year ago and the bushes, trees etc. should be larger, fuller this year, just need some leaves and flowers. I am looking forward to see the garden 5 years from now.
