Flower Abstraction 101

 Size comparison to a 6" x 6" painting

This is my largest painting of these abstract flowers. I have been doing around 30 paintings of this concept of flowers, small and large ones, all focused on their design and colors. This painting is like a rainbow. It sings with color and have great impact. It is anything but boring. It is fun.

Shapes & Movement 13


I did three variations of this abstract composition, trying out some different approaches. The largest one was posted earlier. This one is similar to that one, but smaller. The paint layers & brush strokes  are clean and graphic.

Flower Abstraction 98

This is one of my large flower abstraction paintings and one of the more abstract ones. I like how the colors are working together and how playful it is.

Landscape Exploration 11

This is my latest painting. Can't say that I am objective right now, but I am pleased with it. I know that I can paint small, but right now it doesn't work for me. It is only when I go big that I feel that I can spread my wings and fly. Going small right now mean getting stuck, but I know that will change.

Shapes & Movement 23

I still don't know if it is a good thing to post on a weekend, but haven't posted for a few days and thought it was time for something new.
 I haven't painted for a week, felt like I was painting on routine, had the "been there, done that" feeling. 
That was a good break, I am back now and it is fun to paint again. This is a painting that I did a while back, an abstract painting with the slightest association of trees.

Giclée Prints

When I had my exhibition in April, I decided to make some giclée prints (reproductions).
 I chose 5 paintings, some of my favorites, printed them in smaller versions than the originals.
The prints are limited editions of 50 and they are all numbered and signed.

The smaller ones cost 60 $ and the larger ones 65 $, shipping and handling included. If you want one, visit my DPW page or contact me.

Tree Abstraction 52

I have been thinking about the fact that I have been continuously painting for 3 years, something I haven't been able to do before. My conclusion is that before I did nothing to evolve, to grow, just did what I had always done. Sure I got more skill, but I never got a thrill from it. For better or worse, I am now on this journey and I enjoy it.

This is an larger abstract landscape painting, with a limited color palette.

Tree Abstraction 54

I just went full turbo with this one, going full color, not holding back. It remind me of a rainbow and I like how bold it is.

Landscape Abstraction 2

This painting is the result of going in a new direction, but keeping a limited color palette. I like this one a lot.

Flower Abstraction 100

I often hear that my art is colorful, something I don't think of when painting. With this one I wanted to pull back, use less color, but in the end I think it is still colorful, just not as much as usual. I did a smaller (16" x 16") version also, will post that one later.

Tree Abstraction 49

(Since it is a study and I had a birthday recently)

This one is a revisit to an older approach to paint trees, a path I will revisit again. This one was more like a study than an attempt to do a finished painting. I have been painting a lot lately and am considering what to do next, slowing down a little.

Landscape Abstraction 3

This is one of the most complex landscapes that I have done. At first I did work more with depth, fading colors more in the distance, but it got so boring that I had to go my own way, after all, I am no realistic painter. It was a real challenge, but I like the end result.

Flower Abstraction 97

I have now done a series of larger flower abstraction paintings and I have had a lot of fun pushing colors, shapes and my comfort zone.

Landscape Exploration 5

This is one of the large paintings that I did during and after my exhibition ended. I was very inspired. The paintings is very conceptional and graphic.

Flower Abstraction 94

Some paintings inspire one to take a certain direction, my "Flower Abstraction 93" painting was one of those. After painting a lot of trees, I needed a change, and this was the path I followed. These large flower abstraction paintings are more or less bold, more or less abstract, but they all have in common that I tried to push my limits. This is the first one I did.
