Autumn Berry Abstraction 24

I am painting a lot of abstract paintings right now, something I am enjoying a lot. It is a subject that I can explore without having any limitations. I know that there will come a day when I will get stuck, repeating myself and loose the creative drive, then it is time to move on to a new subject. That happened earlier with my "Autumn berries" series.

This painting is from earlier, when all I wanted to paint was berries. I know I will continue with the subject, but for now I have nothing new to add to the subject.

Apple Abstraction 27


Painting small work for me right now and I am taking advantage of it. With this small painting I wanted it to give the impression of a large apple, pushing the negative spaces to the minimum.

Shapes & Movement 58

Don't adjust your screen. Yes, finally went black and white. When I was younger, just starting out, I did mostly black and white drawings. A recent friend's request gave me the reason to give it a try. This is my first attempt.

Flower Abstraction 223


This is one of the flower abstractions I did earlier this summer. It is one of my favorites. This one is a good example of going with ones instincts and not overthink things. It painted itself.

Rough Cherries 2

It was a while since I painted any cherries. I had just finished the last "autumn berries" paintings, when got the idea that it would be interesting to see how I would approach cherries today. This is one of the paintings that came out of that idea. I might do some more, going more abstract. This one is loose and rough.

Shapes & Movement 48

I thought it was time to continue my abstract exploration. I think it helps me to loose up and experiment. It also make me think different in a different way. This is the first  abstract painting that I have done since January.

Apple Abstraction 25


I find it interesting to paint a simple apple as long as I can put enough personality into it. I think I put enough spin to this one for it to be recognizable me.

Flower Abstraction 204

Living up north (Sweden) mean that the days get shorter right now. That mean that there is less time to paint in natural daylight. Artificial light has it's limits. 

I have been thinking about exploring abstract art again, and I am finally continuing my "shapes and movement" series again. Will post those soon.

This is one of my flower abstraction that I did this summer.

Flower Abstraction 214


This is a flower abstraction I did a while ago. It was one of those paintings that painted itself.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 62

Autumn have taken over my life right now, putting the garden in order for the winter and making Jam and marmalade from the berries we got this season. 
I got the idea that I am going up a few sizes and to a few bird's nest abstractions, inspired by this one. Love the colors and the graphic feel.

Flower Abstraction 207

This is a flower abstraction where I really went outside my comfort zone. Playing with the colors. I started with a colorful pink background and worked with soft muted colors to create and shape the flower.

Playful Tomato Abstraction 2


I have done this composition before, but wanted to mix things up and I thought this was a way to do it, see how I approach a subject today. I my work approach is different today and it shows in the painting compared to the old one.
