Bird's Nest Abstraction 80

Last post of the year and I thought it would be appropriate to end the year with something colorful, like a firework. I wish all viewers, art-lovers, friends and collectors a Happy New Creative Year.

Birch Abstraction 6


I am working mostly with non-figurative abstract paintings at the moment and that will naturally be a common theme in my future posts. I try to mix up things from time to time and the painting of the day is one of those paintings. I have done of landscapes and tree paintings a while back, thought I would take the opportunity to do a small tree painting. Painting small has worked very well for me lately. I would like to take future tree painting in to a more abstract direction, but I like this one a lot.

Berry Abstraction 3


After doing a few berry paintings (autumn berries & cherries) it was time to mix things up. I wanted to do something else, but didn't know what I wanted to paint. Not sure why, but I stuck with the berries, but went more abstract with it. This is the result.

Shapes & Movement 72

I am sure that even art-lovers has better things to do right now, but I think I should keep on posting. This is a black and white abstract painting, a little larger than my previous ones. It has a winter, snow storm feeling. Appropriate for the season.

I wish you.....

I want to take the opportunity and wish all friends, collectors and art-lovers a Merry X-Mas and a Happy New Creative Year.

Shapes & Movement 54

This is one of my first abstract paintings I did when I returned to the subject. It is very small, but colorful, clean and graphic. It has great impact for a small painting.

Pine Cone Abstraction 14

Here is another playful take on a Pine Cone. Every time I paint one, I get reminded of the similarities to a pine-tree or a fir-tree.

Rough Cherries 3

This is a small painting I did earlier this autumn. It was a while since I painted cherries and I wanted to take advantage of my experience with autumn berries. I kept it simple and rough.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 73

This is one of my more colorful nest paintings. I wanted it to be less realistic, to be more about color and shapes. An explosion of shapes and color. I used a limited color pallette to give it a graphic look.

Shapes & Movement 76

I have experimenting with black and white abstract paintings and from that there isn't a big leap to adding a color (or two). I like how it still look very graphic, but gives the painting that extra dimension.

Autumn Berry Abstraction 30


I have a few more autumn berry paintings left, but after that, I need to paint some more or find a new subject. It is nice to have a few subjects going at the same time,  to mix things up.

Autumn Berry Abstraction 28 - Framed


This is how this painting looked with a simple frame that I made. I usually make these frames for smaller paintings, like 6 x 6 inches, but works for larger ones too. The new owner was happy with the result.

Shapes & Movement 52

This is the 3rd of the 3 abstract paintings that I did more or less simultaneous a while back. The start and approach were the same, but the color combination and end result where very different.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 72


This is one of my newest bird's nest paintings. I have tried to push them be more abstract, where it is not as important to read them as bird's nests. In the end, I want them to be bold, colorful and fun.
