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.

Landscape Exploration 23

I did this a while ago, I tend to go with a theme right now until I get bored or feel that I don't adding anything new to the table. Going smaller mean keeping it simple,clean and not to overwork it with details.

Playful Fruit Abstraction 1

When I played around with my flower exploration series, I started to do parts of flowers, petals and fruit on the table. The result was a very fresh and playful approach to it. It also show that overthinking can be a bad thing and I should trust my instinct.

Shapes & Movement 116

This is one of my favorite paintings at the moment. Love the colors and the rhythm of the lines and shapes.

Flower Exploration 12

After several painting of flowers in a vase, I thought I take it a little more abstract, skipping the vase and go with shapes and colors. Working like I do, going where my instinct lead me, it got less abstract than I had in mind, but that isn't a bad thing. I like this one a lot.

Landscape Exploration 26

Going down in size from time to time is fun, just have to keep it clean and not to overwork with details.

Flower Exploration 2

This is the 2nd painting I did in this series. I like the contrasts and the arrangement in this one. I'm not sure how many I will make, but I will push them to a more abstract direction too.

Flower Exploration 3

This is the 3rd painting in this new series of paintings. I have done 11 so far. It is fun to explore something new and to have an idea what I want with it.

Landscape Exploration 24

I wanted to push this one a little further than the previous ones, bolder colors, a little rougher etc.
