Flower Abstraction 58

This was an exploration of multiple flower shapes, perhaps there will be a full flower bouquet some day.

Flower Abstraction 67

I was considering posting another tree painting, but decided against it, and will mixing things up. This is a flower abstraction based on the idea of a sunflower. I like those a lot, not sure why.

Landscape Exploration 1


My two worst enemies are "Over thinking" and "Rushing things" (going to loose too fast), which resulted in no tree paintings last year.
I have finally gotten through that barrier and have done several paintings now. Today's post isn't something that I think is a perfect fit with my style, a landscape. I was talking to my father about what to paint and he suggested a photo that he took last year and that was a challenge.
I am sure I can develop this further, going bolder and more abstract, but I learned a lot during this process.

Persimmon Abstraction 1

This is a new version of a painting I did two years ago. The only thing that they have in common is the composition, otherwise they are as different as day and night. I like the old one, but a lot has happened since then and I thought I would be able to make something new with it.

Flower Abstraction 70

This is a new version of a painting/composition that I did in July last year. The original was very direct and had a certain simplicity over it. It was one of those paintings that painted itself. Very few brush strokes was needed. I wanted to go a little further with this one, and I am very satisfied with the result.

Flower Abstraction 66

This one emerged from playing with floral abstract shapes. I had an idea about dividing the panel in two areas, one cold and one warm. This is what I came up with.

Flower abstraction 69

This is my 2nd version of this subject and composition. The first one is more expressive and got bold colors and brush strokes. I wanted to try the opposite approach and painted a 2nd one (and a 3rd and a 4th). I went up in size with the last two.

Abstracture 21

This is an exploration with no other purpose than see where it took me. The only thing I used as inspiration was flower shapes. I am not objective enough right now to judge the result, but I had a lot of fun painting it. Every action has a reaction.

Rowan Berrries 20

My focus is still on April and I got a lot of thinking to do. There is also a lot of things needed to be done until the exhibition and all paintings done should be a possibility to be used in that context.
This is a larger version of one of my favorite Rowan berries paintings. Going larger usually mean more details, but I tried to keep the roughness of the original.

Abstracture 18

This is a subject/composition that I have made several versions of. This is the largest one and my personal favorite . I used larger brushes than usual and I used the momentum that I got from having done it before. If anything, this one look even better in person.

Apple Abstraction 22

I thought take the opportunity this weekend to post a small painting that I made a while back, never got around to post it before, there were always something else that got posted instead.

Flower Abstraction 65

I thought I post this one as a contrast to what I have posted lately. I didn't have any intentions to go less abstract with this one, it just happened. I wanted to do a new version of an old painting/composition of mine. I went up in size, toned a scrapped panel with a deep pink transparent color, that way I had some lovely patterns to incorporate (been doing that a lot lately).
In this case the patterns lead me to a more detailed and less abstract painting, which doesn't have to be a bad thing.

Abstracture 19

My paintings will always have some degree of abstraction. I think this one is abstract enough to fit into my "abstracture" series. It has a floral references in it's shapes and colors, but doesn't have to be flowers.

Flower Abstraction 62


This is a totally different take on a flower composition that I painted and posted earlier. It is interesting how different a painting can end up, even if one is using the same inspiration.

Abstracture 22

When I started my journey almost 3 years ago, I worked so differently. Not only do I paint faster, more expressive and instinctively , but my interest in art has also changed. I am still exploring non figurative abstract art. I learn a lot and have fun doing it.

Bird's nest abstraction 36

Not For Sale

I think this one is appropriate to be the first post of 2014. It reminds me of firework, an explosion of color. I have worked a lot with simplicity lately, but that is something that can't be said of this one.
