Tree Abstraction 60

This is one of a couple of paintings that have been around for a while, but haven't been posted for some reason. This one is from February and I was doing a lot of landscapes and tree paintings, getting ready for my Easter exhibition.

Flower Abstraction 157 + Bird's Nest Abstraction 55

The autumn is here and the days are getting shorter. It is hard to find time to paint during the day, when the light is good.
I took some pictures of my latest paintings, displayed on my kitchen wall, showing their size. Not the best light condition, the paintings are in shadow, but I hope they do them justice.

Flower Abstraction 157

After the initial start, the large flowers and the dark, but vivid background, I had two choices. I could stay with that and only work and balance these elements. I could also take advantage of the large size to ad smaller elements, to ad size and depth contrasts. I chose to latter. I think I made the right decision.

Bird's nest abstraction 55

I worked on this for a while. It was originally a flower abstraction that went nowhere I wasn't inspired and painting wasn't on my mind. At some point I decided to scrap it and have some fun with it. Working on a used canvas has it's benefits and disadvantages. On one side there is no pressure (can only get better), on the other side lower ones expectation and not taking things serious.

It took some time to get things right, but I had fun, got some inspiration, and I like the result.

Flower Abstraction 155


I hope I don't jinx it, but I am painting again. I have done a large bird's nest painting and I am currently working on a large (39.4" 39.4") flower abstraction painting that looks very promising so far.

I did this one a while back, experimenting with colors and shape.

Flower Abstraction 156


Time flies and the garden have taken a lot of time and interest. A lot to think about, plan and execute. I have also harvest what we got, made some jam etc.
I am not sure if it's the garden that interest me more right now, but I don't feel any strong urges or inspiration to paint. I know that I need to find and get inspired by a new subject, well it happens when it happens.
This is a small flower abstraction I did earlier. It is fun, bright and playful.
