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.

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.

Healthy Snacks 12


I realized when I posted an old favorite of mine on Instagram, that it seem that I never posted it on my blog, or elsewhere. Probably because I did a few versions, especially close-ups of the same set up.

I really like this one too, because it is larger and a little "over the top".

Garden progress - Spring 2017

We have done a lot of work with the front part of our garden. Have removed 50-75% of the old bushes, changed the layout and planted new "stuff". The spring has just arrived here in the south of Sweden, many bushes and trees has starting to get leaves and/or flowers, but need some more time before they show their glory. There is also a lot of flowers coming up from the ground, but it will take some time before they bloom.







The rest of our garden has some new additions, finished path, added a few new plants. Over all the back was done a year ago and the bushes, trees etc. should be larger, fuller this year, just need some leaves and flowers. I am looking forward to see the garden 5 years from now.

Shapes & Movement 55


Spring is here and I am putting all my free time in the garden, changing the layout on the front side, doing the ground work. I have been waiting a long time to get things going and finally I can.

This is a small abstract painting that I did this winter. It is simple, direct and with a limited color pallette.

Bird's Nest Abstraction 70


Putting eggs in an abstract bird's nest makes it less abstract, but sometimes I like the mix things up and sometimes it works very well. This is one of those occasions. I also decided to go more "nature" with the colors.

Shapes & Movement 108


This is my largest painting I have done the last months, and probably the last painting I did before my spring break. Working large give me the space to go for it, but can also be a challenge, finding the right size variation and right amount of details.

Flower Abstraction 197


This flower abstraction remind me of flowers glowing in the moonlight, no idea why, but that is the feeling I get.
I know I should be painting, but time is better spent right now by preparing things for the "Easter exhibition" and spring is knocking on the door and so much to prepare and plan for the coming work in the garden. Will rework the front of the house, where we built the new fence and we will also ad two Fig trees to the mix of eatable trees and bushes.
