It has been a while since I painted anything small. I will give it some more attention and hopefully post them more regular. This is small painting in my latest series. Going small forces me to simplify and focus the composition.

Sometimes a painting is the continuation of the previous one, sometime a from clear new idea and sometimes, like this one, it evolved during the process.

Not all paintings that I have done lately has been big (even though most of them are). This is one of my smallest tree paintings and I really like it. It has a simplicity and directness that I really like.
To mark my abstract adventure and bring them together, make them a series, I have decided to change their names. The new name on this series of paintings will be "Shapes & Movement".

I'm new to painting non figurative abstract paintings, have only done a few, but it is an interesting subject, as long as I got an idea or a concept. It is no secret I like to paint big, I even like big paintings on my walls.
I did this composition on a small panel earlier, I liked it a lot. I tried several times to transfer it to a larger panel, but every time something was lost in the translation.
I didn't give up, and with this one I finally got what I was looking for.

I am still not sure how many paintings I will show in my exhibit during Easter, but I have to get paintings framed and decide which will be in soon. This is one that I might have in, but all depend what mix of paintings I decide to have. I have some large more abstract nest paintings that I think is among the ones that will be in the exhibition, so this one is only a "might be in".

I have done 3 paintings of this subject and composition, a single flower based on a sunflower. The last one was a small painting that I thought would be on my upcoming exhibition, but it got sold. I got the urge to do another one, but not repeating myself. I went up in size, a lot, and I like the impact that it has.

It is typically me, but right now, when everything is working out, I get tired of what I am doing. I think I have to mix up things a little and give trees a rest for a while.
I did this around a week ago and it is not my typically painting. It is a gallery wrapped canvas and is among the biggest things I have done.
My challenge when it comes to painting is the fine balance between being contemporary and being illustrative. I really wanted to keep this one contemporary and rough. I think it turned out great.
