Flower Exploration 12

After several painting of flowers in a vase, I thought I take it a little more abstract, skipping the vase and go with shapes and colors. Working like I do, going where my instinct lead me, it got less abstract than I had in mind, but that isn't a bad thing. I like this one a lot.

Landscape Exploration 23

Going down in size from time to time is fun, just have to keep it clean and not to overwork with details.

Flower Exploration 2

This is the 2nd painting I did in this series. I like the contrasts and the arrangement in this one. I'm not sure how many I will make, but I will push them to a more abstract direction too.

Flower Exploration 3

This is the 3rd painting in this new series of paintings. I have done 11 so far. It is fun to explore something new and to have an idea what I want with it.

Landscape Exploration 24

I wanted to push this one a little further than the previous ones, bolder colors, a little rougher etc.

Flower Exploration 1

I have thought of exploring flowers in a vase for a long time, finally I got the courage to go with it. This is the first one, had a little problem with the vase in itself, but I got it to work in the end.

I realized during the process that I am not interested in the vase in itself and want to find a concept of a vase that I like, and stick with it.

Apple Abstraction 30

After a long break like this, around 4 months, it is hard to get back where I were. I think it is because I am a different painter today, going with instinct, intuition and expression. I have to find the moment where I find myself back om my journey.

Well, baby steps.... 

This is a small expressive apple abstraction that I like a lot. It is clean, expressive and have my personal touch to it.

Flower Abstraction 231

There is a lot of trial and error going on right now. It takes time to find the balance between patience and spontaneity, detail and simplicity and finding out what works right now. Depending on mood and where I am at the moment does matter. It can influence what size and subject that works best at that time.

This is a small flower abstraction I did to get going and get a feel about what works and what I feel like.

Landscape Exploration 21

This is a painting to get things going. I used a slightly used canvas-board, not a clean slate, but it allowed me to work without expectations. It is rough, but I made it work.
