Abstructure 11

One of my personal favorite paintings is "Abstructure 4", I even made a smaller version of it that I sold. I love the impact of it and I wanted a companion piece to it, so I came up with this one. I tried to make it similar, but different than the original.

Rowan Berries 8

Well, it it wasn't for the fact that I have painted a new small (the smallest) Rowan berries painting, this would have been the last to post. I know that Rowan berries isn't found everywhere, but there is a lot of similar trees and bushes with red berries.

Flower Abstraction 13

I'm not sure if it is the spring feelings in me that keep me painting these floral paintings, but I got a lot of fun doing it. I did a multi daisy painting earlier and I was able to balance things so it didn't end up like a massive mess of lines. It was rough, but I liked it. This is another attempt at it, but also a way to do this weeks DPW challenge, "The Paint It White Challenge".

Flower Abstraction 16

I haven't done much paintings of colorful flowers. I usually go with the subtle colors of the Iris or white. I did push myself with this composition.The flowers I painted were these multicolor cone flowers. I did a smaller one first that I liked, but I wanted to see if I could improve it when painting it in a larger version.
If I did or not is a matter of taste really. I will show the other one in a few days or so.

Apples and napa cabbage 1

It is not that I like the "old" paintings that I have left to show, but I like to mix things up with some new ones.
This is a first for me, painting cabbage and it was a challenge. I started a painting with this, kind of strange set up, but it looked far too "realistic" and I did this one instead. I took what I had learned and put more spin on it. I'm not sure why I liked this composition, perhaps because it's not predictable. I had a lot of fun painting it.

Exploration 4


This is another one of my exploration into non figurative abstract art. I played with my lines, shapes and colors. I will try abstract again, but I want to have a theme, an idea to work around, so it happens when it happens.

Abstracture 6

I have played around a lot with flowers like Daisies and Cone flowers, especially since I realized that I could take a lot of creative license. This is simplicity on a large scale, being bold with the brush strokes.

Apple Abstraction 21


 AuctionThis is another one of the small paintings I did earlier, an apple study/abstraction. I let the brush strokes speak.

Rowan Berries 12 (Post number 500)

I got several anniversaries and special days this year, me and my love have been together for 10 years soon, been married one year, turning 50 in late May and putting up post number 500 on my blog.
I think in a way it is fitting to post a Rowan berries painting since that is the theme that I have enjoyed painting the most these last months. It wouldn't surprise me if I would paint more of them, but after this I only have one more to post.

Face Exploration 8

This is the last "portrait" painting that I have to show for now. I am back painting, but I haven't made any attempt on faces yet. I went rougher with this one, compared to the last one. I hope I didn't go too far when it comes to the shadows, they have an almost abstract feel.

Exploration 3

I will explore non-figurative abstract more, but I did this one a while back. I played with different size brush strokes and color, keeping it clean and graphic.

Abstructure 8

I have some non-figurative abstract paintings to show, but I thought I post this one first. It is an abstract painting with a reference in nature.

Blueberry Abstraction 7

I did earlier two paintings that I liked a lot, that combined blueberries and fabric. I kept them very simple, with an abstract quality. This is a small variation of that theme. I tried to keep it simple and rough enough. It was painted around the same time as the other ones.
I am pleased with the fact that I am painting again, mixed results, but it is a start.

Flower Abstraction 9


This is another one of those small paintings I did a while back. I had done several single flower paintings and to not repeat myself I went very rough with this one. There is no black lines in this painting. I used dark blue lines when needed.

Face Exploration 9

I got two more paintings of faces to post. Until now I have posted the previous ones in the order they were painted, but I think I will post the latest one first. I really went back to basics with this one, even though the brush strokes are still very expressive. I took a lot more creative license with the one that is left.

Apple Abstraction 20

 Buy two 6" x 6" paintings and only pay shipping and handling for one.

I have four creative months behind me and now it is time for a break, or at least slowing down. I don't get the results I want, lack inspiration and energy. Trying too much isn't always a good thing, sometimes one just have to take a step back, relax and wait for the creative juices to come back. I will keep posting, I haven't run out of paintings to show.
If anyone got some suggestions/ideas that might suit my style of painting or inspire me, feel free to be my muse.
