It has been a while since the last post. It’s the beginning of a new year and I have started painting again after a longer break.
Meanwhile a few of my paintings have moved to new locations.
This one made it all the way to Guangzhou in southern China.
And these two found a new home in Darmstadt, Germany ^^
Exhibition is still in full swing and photos will follow soon. But meanwhile I received a photo of this painting which I had almost forgotten about.
Painted it a long time ago as a present from a friend to her fiance. Meanwhile the sleepy leopard has made it all the way to HAWAII and is keeping them happy. Seems like he got a good home there as he is still sleeping ^^
I went to Ireland for the summer and it was nice to see some of my old paintings again. I gave these two as presents to dear friends of mine a couple of years ago.
The Inner Child. I also did the drawing on the right. Daughter and dog of the family.
And dester fox number 2. I thought they look really cute…
And this has nothing to do with this, but I am just reading Flaubert and came across this quote that I liked:
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. – Gustave Flaubert
My first desert fox. I discovered them when a colleague asked “What kind of animal do you look like?” and she said that she would be a desert fox.
I posted a picture of this painting the first time a couple of months ago when it was still a work in progress. So here finally the finished version of it.
And regarding the title… Maybe I just like taking naps so much ^^ (see here for Siesta I & Siesta II)
Seems like I like similar titles or maybe I just lack imagination for better names (see here Wings I & Wings II) . But here is another follow up painting in the same style as Siesta III. The two kind of complement each other on the wall. It was never intended but somehow just happened.
After I felt like uploading a bunch of photos I took here and there the other day, I thought it is about time to put some of the things up I’ve been painting in Reykjavik in June like crazy.
Say hello to Mr. Squirrel.
Yes, this is apparently what you get when you go on holiday at home. Nostalgia.
Discovered this again at a friend’s place. Together with Nicole, a very good friend of mine, we I painted this one for our friend’s birthday as a last minute present ^^. Inspiration was her cat Heidi.
I was home on a family visit recently and discovered some of my older works once again. These two are still among my favourites.
