Even more of Ben & Jessica

Today I have been able to spend the entire day in the studio, the first in a really long time!

Even more of Ben & Jessica

Ben & Jessica again!

Now it looks like this…

The background is unpainted and will darken with time. I wanted to create a black&white feel. The size of the painting is 52 x 40 cm. Hmm… something is needed…?

Next step: Ben & Jessica

Slow progress, the paint has to dry… English red and Parisian blue, very strong and dominant colors. This was done two days ago. I will continue tomorrow.

Painting Ben & Jessica

I am finally back in the studio! Wow! Starting up a new painting of my friends Benjamin and Jessica. This is the fragile beginning… don’t jugde yet.

Art Copenhagen and house project

Last Saturday a friend and I went to Art Copenhagen. As usual it is like information overflow… too much art in one place. Oddly enough it is not like visiting a large museum, maybe because each gallery may present a large variety of artists. But it is interesting to try to think about what remains after seeing so much, and I especially think of a few artists in the booth of Galleri Flach in Stockholm. One is Kristina Bength, who makes large and very good water color pictures. The other is Andreas Johansson, who makes large size collage that look like a kind of landscape photo, but then you find out that is a made up picture combined by many separate pictures… Hard to describe, check the gallery site: www.galleriflach.com.

Finally we are getting really close to completion at the house and I can see a possibility to get back into the studio in the not too distant future…

The house looks much better now, and most important – it is healthier! We are doing a lot of work inside also and I am cleaning up and getting rid of a lot of old stuff. Next week I will decide how to proceed with the felling of a very large birch tree and possibly a few other trees. Maybe I will give it another couple of weeks…

Colors in the sky

The sky seen from the studio this time of the year is truly amazing…

Graffiti that cleans itself…?

Check what I received today: pictures of a Facial on a train. It would be fun to stand among tired commuters when this train arrives with a friendly smile…
But I wonder how long the Facial will remain on the train? Maybe the wind and the rain will make it fly off, or someone will simply “steal” it.
