20 days left....

I thought I would be able to get some painting done before moving, but my heart and mind isn't in it, so no painting until we are set in our new place. I did create this nice pile though. Does it count as a sculpture? (just kidding)

20 days left now...

Latest update!

I have been absent for a while and I haven't had any serious painting time for months. 
It started with the idea of starting to plan the next part of our life, getting a larger place to live in.
That meant fixing/renovate our kitchen etc., selling our apartment, finding a house to buy and moving there.
Well, we have 6 weeks to pack our things and move to our first house. A lot more space (with a real studio space to paint in), a garden etc. I am looking forward to it.

I am going to try to get one painting done before it is time to focus on packing. It is for my own pleasure and to get my mind off things. I think I am going for a large version of an old favorite of mine. 

I also took the time to go through old paintings and destroyed the ones that I didn't like, wasn't good enough or interesting enough to keep. The final count was around 70 paintings, so that makes the move slightly lighter.

I hope I will get back to some regular painting soon.
This is a picture of some of the paintings that are no longer.

Carol Marine's Book "Daily Painting"

Carol Marine has written a book about "Daily Painting". She is a great artist and teacher and the book is full of great art and tips about painting. Carol was kind enough to include me, my thoughts and a painting in the book.

It is a great book and it is available at Amazon.
