Autumn Berry Abstraction 1 - Detail

My largest painting to date, is done.  The question is: "when is the right time to post it?"
After all, it is the holidays, and New Year is approaching. Many people spend the time with family and friends, art might not be the priority.

Hear is a teaser anyway, a small strip of the painting.

Merry X-Mas and A Happy Creative New Year

I'm working on my largest painting to date. It is a real challenge and adventure working this big. I have no idea if it will be a success or not, but I learn a lot.

I want to take the opportunity to wish all viewers, buyers & subscribers a Merry X-mas and A Happy New Year. Thank you all for a great year.

Best wishes

Flower Abstraction 161

This was a great break, because it left me with some great energy and I am looking forward to paint again.
I felt that it was time to leave the non-figurative abstract art for now and I went back to my flower abstractions, but with the ambition to push my limits, going outside my comfort zone.
Didn't want to push too hard, just enough..... and I like the result.

Shapes & Movement 44

What to do when you love part of a painting, but not able to connect it all together? Well this one was a small part of a larger painting that didn't go in any direction that I liked. I removed the canvas from the frame and stretched this part on a smaller frame. I had to adjust a few things to make it work, but I think it was worth the extra effort.

Feature about "Daily Painting"

A while back, I was contacted by the editor of an English art magazine called "Artists & Illustrators" regarding taking part of a feature about "Daily painting".
You can find the article and my contribution in the January edition, available now.

Shapes & Movement 43

Time to recharge and do something else. Well there is other things to do this time of year. I have actually baked, made jam. Having a garden and living in the country has really made a difference in my life. One never know before you "have to" if gardening is something that you like. In my case, I found out that I do. 

This is another small abstract painting, trying to find the balance between detail and simplicity.
