At Galleri MDA in Blå Hallen

I have the honor of showing with Galleri MDA at Blå Hallen in Höganäs for a few weekends in July. A lot of people are moving through the very cool “market place” of Blå Hallen, where you can meet people and even get a really good pizza.

Six Horizon pieces and one shadow steel piece on display. The large painting to the left is painted by Diego Binéitez.

New shadow piece!

I finally received the “latest” steel shadow piece that I actually had laser cut over a year ago, but since we were not able to come to Sweden, it was kept at Femcab in Värnamo until yesterday! It is called Nora and is 60 x 30 cm. Come and visit and see it and the almost new Picasso piece int he background. There will be an open studio exhibition July 23 – 25, from 11 to 17 (5 pm) each day.

Alone…

This is a new painting, which combines landscape/horizon with a human figure. It is based on a photo taken of my mom’s older sister, who died four years old, before my mom was born. Mom suggested the title “Alone, on a Different Shore”. Oil on plywood, with an elegant frame that I made. 22″ x 18.5″ (56 x 47 cm).

Larger Abstract Horizon paintings

I am making some larger Abstract Horizon paintings for a possible exhibition. These are 31.5″ x 31.5″ (80 x 80 cm). Most of them can be hung either may. This one is called Abstract Horizon 3-2021, oil on plywood.

A painted selfie, why not?

It is very common for millions (billions?) of people to post selfies on social media. A snapshot or a staged photograph. I thought of this phenomenon and decided to paint a few selfies. This is the first one, 12×20 cm, in the Post Art format. And maybe it will be mailed to someone soon?

12 new Post Art paintings

I have made 12 new small paintings, size 12×20 cm (about 4.5″x8″) and these will be mailed as post cards. I have done it before and even sent what I call Post Art paintings from the USA to Europe and they usually arrive in surprisingly good condition. Who will receive a painting in the mail?

Frederick going home

Water cut steel piece The Abolitionist, No. 1 of 10, is on its way to The Frederick Douglass Center for Collaborative Leadership in Rochester, New York. It will be on permanent display. Visit their website to learn more about what they do: https://fdfi.org

Finally something new

Well, in early February I thought I was recovering from pneumonia. I didn’t. And it was not really pneumonia. I was finally diagnosed with a pretty high level of Valley Fever. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either. It is caused by a fungus in the dry desert areas mainly in the Phoenix and Tucson area and in the San Joaquin Valley in California. It can only be treated with anti fungal meds and for a pretty long time. So I am on that now and slowly getting better, riding my horse again and starting to do some work in the studio. Here are four new pieces that I have painted for a specific purpose. They are all 18″ x 18″ (about 46 x 46 cm), oil on plywood.

Freedom

I am slowly recovering from pneumonia, having been sick over two weeks already. Luckily no Covid-19. So I have not been able to do much in the studio. The most recent work I have completed is this piece, which I am calling Freedom. Oil on plywood, 45″ x 30 ” (114 x 76 cm).
