The Graffiti wall was a hit

My old 12 meter mural was donated to the graffiti artists of Höganäs in the fall of 2014. Apparently it was a hit and it was hit by the recent storm Gorm as well and destroyed. So in the spring of 2016 they will build a new 12 meter wall and secure it with concrete! Wow, Go Höganäs Go! Read this.

This is how it looked once upon the time.

Euphoria

Yesterday as I was painting while enjoying some good music, I felt euphoric for a while. That fleeting sense of intense happiness is rare and it has been quite a while since I last felt it while painting. It is something about working in large format, using a large brush and painting with your entire body being in motion.

While working on this I realized that it is not easier to make a rougher painting than one that is more exact, closer to realistic. There are so many decisions involved and it is so easy to over-work a piece.

Mixed media

I made a 385 cm long artwork some time ago. It consists of six parts. Andrea was not pleased with it and challenged me to take it a step further. So, just for the fun of it, I added a few different things.

Not looking back

Too late to regret anything, just move forward and follow your instincts… or whatever it is.

Starting on a new, large piece

Yesterday I started on this large piece, the format is 122 x 190 cm (48 x 75 inches). I got a good start, it already looks pretty cool. Will I regret that I am just about to continue?
