Flower Exploration 11


This is one of the largest paintings that I have done in this series. It has a more open color scheme, but I think it has a very distinct look, I like it a lot.

Flower Exploration 18


And now ..... something totally different, but still me.

After posting some of the initial line work that I usually use in the beginning of a painting, and some of the reaction I got from it, I thought it might be something I could work with.
This painting is based on that idea, with some additional details. I will probably explore this more in the future.

Flower Exploration 4



I have really played around with this theme, color variations, approaches and expression. I am not sure why.... but I usually go with a theme until I got nothing more to add. I might do more at a later point, but it all depend if I feel the inspiration for that subject again.

Flower Exploration 6





I considered to post a painting that I did a while back, for change of pace, but I think I stick with what I am doing right now. Can post the older paintings if I take a break or something.

This is a color variation on the flower exploration theme. I keep finding "what if" ideas, which is a good thing, driving me forward outside my comfort zone.

Shapes & Movement 115




This is a painting from my abstract series, a little different than usual. The style is mine, but the colors are more subtle, more restraint. I like it a lot. It is large, got a lot of details, but feel very calm. I will go this route again.

Apple Abstraction 31



The weird thing for me is that I can never plan or combine large or small paintings, often it all depend on what is working at the moment. I guess it has to do with (unlike 7-8 years ago) that I paint with instinct, expression, not planning too much. 
At the moment large works best, with small interruptions where I get some inspiration from details that I can take to a smaller canvas. Apples was one thing that worked very well on a few of my "Flower Exploration" paintings, and this one is the result of it.

Flower Exploration 14



I know that I am not posting the paintings in this series in the order they were made, but like my art, I go with my gut feeling. As a result of the work process with these paintings, an idea has formed, what if I just use my line work on a white canvas, more or less. I might give that a try.

Flower Exploration 7



This is a small flower painting that is the result of just going for it... testing new things without thinking of it......

Flower Exploration 10



This is an exploration into the dark zone, an almost gothic feel "Flower Exploration" painting. I really like it and might enter the dark zone again.
