Bird's Nest 56

On my last exhibition I had a small bird's nest painting that got sold early and I got several questions about it. It is a challenge, but I think it is time to put some more effort into small bird's nests. This one is the first one, not as small as the sold one, but small enough.

Flower Abstraction 168


I usually do these more complex multi flower abstractions on larger canvases, but I wanted to push my limits and do it on a smaller scale (12" x 12"). I am pleased with the result.

Autumn Berry Abstraction 16

I hope I will get lots of interesting reference photos from our garden this year. There is a lot of berries growing. I call this series autumn berries because most berries get ripe late summer, early autumn and is more of a guideline.
This is a new painting in the series and the inspiration came from a painting that I sold during my Easter Exhibition. This one is a lot smaller though.

Flower Abstraction 164

This is a rough, clean flower, based on my graphic flower design. It felt good to get something new done, and to be able to ad something that felt new to the painting. It is important that I am able to ad "something new to the conversation" from time to time.

Flower Abstraction 166

 To get started, I chose to paint subjects that are familiar and fun to paint. Naturally I did a few of my flower concept, a simplified flower form that is all about design and color. I just went for it and had some fun with it.

Apple Abstraction 24

To get started, I went back to this painting, a painting that I started a while back, but never finished. Sometimes I get to a point with a painting where I have mixed feelings, not knowing what to do with it. This time I just went for it and had some fun with it.

Flower Abstraction 125


This is a painting that I did earlier this year. It was never posted, I saved it as my contribution to the "Easter Art Lottery" that was held during Easter. There were several that wanted to buy it, but it was reserved to the one that bought the ticket with my number. There were a winner.

Minor changes and painting again...

I am still doing some changes in our garden, no big projects, but enough to make a difference. I have also slowly starting to paint again. Finished two paintings that I started in the spring, but never finished.

Our garden is doing great, the plants are growing......

 It is a while since my last post, and I am still not painting. We are more or less done for now with additions and changes in our garden. The weather is great, perhaps a little too hot, wouldn't mind some rain now and then. My goal is to get painting soon. Here is a few photos of our garden as it was this morning.

Our crops section is doing great. There will be a lot of blueberries and by the judge of the blackberry flowers, there will be lots of them too. The grape plants are doing great and seem to like the spot we chose for them.
