This is a small abstract painting that I did a while ago. I really love to paint a blue and red color pallette, with a touch of yellow as accent.

We are done with all the fencing, small part in the back left from the previous owner, but we leave it for now. Our latest addition is a gate between the house and the storehouse (connected). We wanted to make the main garden an isolated unit, with some protection from animals that might be interested in our crops and berries.
This is how it looks now. (last picture show what it looked like last summer).

I think this is the last painting I finished before I shift my focus to making frames for the Easter exhibition and garden projects. It is a small berry abstraction and it was a challenge to balance simplicity with enough details to make it vivid.

We did the major part of the new fence yesterday, we liked it, but felt that it could be better with a few changes. We did the changes today and we feel that we made the right decision. The first version had more drama, but the final fence has better "flow". I show both versions. The neighbors were good enough to give us free hands, they didn't need the privacy, but we felt that it looked better with it.
I show the final result first and show the first attempt further down.
This is the final fence with the small changes that we did today. We had to cut one pillar/post a little and remove one to make a taller one.
This is how it looked yesterday, with 3 dramatic changes in hight.

I am not painting right now, got my mind on other things. Making frames for my Easter exhibition and garden work take all my free time and energy.
Finished the fence on the front of the house today, might do some minor changes, so I post it when I am sure it is finished. We might have been crazy, but we worked through the cold, rain and wind.
This is an abstract painting that I did a few weeks back. I often react over the harmony in this painting. I really like the vibe I got from this one.

We are not there yet, but I am looking forward to the coming season change. I painted a lot of small flower paintings last summer/autumn and I still got some to post. This one is a little looser than usual, went outside my comfort zone.

Old fence, built by the previous owner.
It is very "wonky" and is leaning towards our neighbor.
The fence stripped down.

Happy Valentine's day everyone!
The subject of today's post isn't typical for a day like this, but the colors are. I did a similar one earlier, but extended the composition and format.

This is one of my abstract paintings where I reduce color, not totally black and white, but scaling down to one color one additional color.

This is another one of my autumn berry paintings that I did last year. I usually go for one subject that are fun to do and I keep painting them as long as I feel that I contribute something. As soon as I get the feeling that I am on repeat, then I move on.

This is an non-figurative abstract painting that I did a while back. It has a limited pallette, but with a lot of values, making it very much alive.

Spring has to wait a little longer, but it's not that far away until the garden wakes up. Time to make plans and do preparations. I still got flowers to show though.

This is a small abstract painting, slightly inspired by flowers. I could have included it in my "flower" series, but I thought it was closer to non-figurative.
