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.

Flower Abstraction 232

I have started to paint again .....

To get into it I used some familiar and fun subjects to paint, with focus on having fun and experimenting. This small flower painting isn't a drastic change, but the process was slightly different.

Shapes & Movement 93

It has been a while since I did some serious painting, but I think that can be a good thing. I feel that I am looking forward to get starting again, to explore new paths, getting ideas about what I want to explore.

I did this one earlier, but never got around to post it.

Did this one earlier the spring. It is a wonderful season for working and enjoying our garden, but am working on getting back to painting again.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 81

This is a painting that I did earlier this year. It was a painting that started out well, went worse and ended up a little rough, but looking great.

Shapes & Movement 97

A while back, I was asked of a friend of mine to do some black/white paintings. When I started to paint and draw, a long time ago, I only worked in black and white. Perhaps that is the reason that I love colors so much now.

Anyway, I thought it would be a challenge and did some small paintings, mostly black and white, sometimes with a small hint of color.
This one has a hint of yellow in it, to give it a warm feeling. I enhanced that feeling with a yellow frame. Available with frame, give me a message if you want it without.

Flower Abstraction 229

 Frame included (optional)

I should be painting right now, but late spring and garden work has taken up my time. I am looking forward to start painting again and I have some ideas what subject I will focus on.

This is a painting that I painted a while back and fit very well with the coming season. One might find something in the gardens right now, that remind of this painting.
