And it has been a storm …
I had just one canvas that i did not use yet, and so i tried to start painting about a week ago. It had been nearly a year ago that i made a painting so the start was not so easy.
The paint, and the colours went everywhere, but i just did not get the result that i wanted. The painting had no body, so i carried on and on and on…
The classic moment came when i decided to take a sponge over the whole painting creating a background of different colours, and from there on i started a whole new composition on the canvas.
The result was this acrylic painting on canvas with some stormy effects.
I called it “Storm”
The panting is made on a stretched canvas on a wooden frame 60×70 cm.
Here are some pictures from the whole painting as well as some more detailed views of the canvas.
After a time-out from painting, i bought some new material this week and made a new start.
I was’nt happy with the intensity of the colours i used and some combinations needed to change. So i bought some Galeria paints to see what the difference it would make, and must must say that it make a big difference.
The colours are more intens, and for the colours i choose, they feel warmer.
The canvas i bought is also from a better quality, all things that make a little difference.
So this one i called “GRAIN”.
It’s a painting on a canvas 60×60 cm
This one i called “DANCINRED”
It’s a painting on a canvas 60×70 cm
All my paintings are made with acrylic paint and the paintings are canvas on a wooden frame.
It has been a long time since i posted some new paintings, and the reason why is quiet obvious, i just did not make any new paintings lately.
I’ve been cleaning out my workspace, as i had a lot of decorationmaterial that i needed to get rid of, before i could reinstall my table and little corner for painting. Now that the chelfs are empty i can start cleaning up the space, putting some paint on the wall and find a nice spot to install my painting-things.
Shortly the weather will improve, also a good thing, as i have no heating in my room.
In the meantime i still have my little gallery where i display the paintings that i made in the past.
Making art is one thing, but finding a place “space” to show is something else.
I’m lucky to have both. I can make paintings and i can show them to the people who are interested in my own gallery.
Gallery is maybe a big word, but i use the entrance to my showroom with mannequins to display my art.
Paintings and mannequins… that does’nt sound bad 😉
Two days a week my showroom for mannequins is open and so i will be showing my paintings at the same time using the entrance as a gallery.
You can visit the showroom and see the paintings at the next adress:
We are open mondays and fridays from 10 till 12 am and 2 till 5 pm
