Inspired by Iceland Throwback

Went through my photos as I was looking for something specific. Found anything but the photo I was looking for. But amongst them I discovered this gem from 2016 – an inspired by Iceland kitsch compilation postcard that I drew to send to the boyfriends family.

Stopover in Ireland

On the way to Athens I had a stop over in Ireland for a couple of days. I always love going back there. I stayed with very good friends of mine and as always it was also nice to visit these two old paintings of mine that are on their living room wall. Take a better look at them here. 

Sorry for the bad picture quality. I finally managed to buy a new phone yesterday. So from now on I hope photos will be better quality.

Update 2014

So finally something new. Have started painting again and the first one has been added to the 2014 gallery. Although I am not sure whether I am actually happy with it or not. Hmm… I might change it after I am finished with the one I am currently working on. I spent my last few off days painting butterflies. Here some excerpts.

Time for another Siesta

And as it is all about paintings of mine moving to new locations, Siesta II recently moved from Darmstadt to Munich.

Siesta, I love you!

And one more! One of my firsts and one of my all time favourites that is gracing this white wall in Oulu, Finland.
I will visit it soon enough 🙂

A new place for Bambi

It’s all about old paintings that found a new home this week. This one is adding a splash of colour to a friends apartment in Reykjavik. And he was so nice to take a more that professional picture of it when I asked him for a random shot. I think I will ask him to photograph my new paintings once they are finished. He definitely did a good job and knows what he is doing.

As he wrote me: “I used a 50mm fixed lens, with shadowless ring light, 7 exposure bracket with deep zoom detail and color accuracy to photograph your print.”

Takk fyrir!

Lost in translation…

Another painting that found a new/old home in Meckenbeuren, Germany, is this one here that has been inspired by an amazing day in Portmarnock with view of Howth, Ireland. Yes, I miss that place.

Rock on

So I finally started painting again. Meanwhile, this old work which is still one of my favorites is gracing the white wall of a dear friends place near Munich. It is fun not only to see old friends but also old artworks again that I had totally forgotten about.

Feathers and such

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 ^^

Something old again

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 ^^

Findings in Ireland

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.

Anonymity

The Inner Child. I also did the drawing on the right. Daughter and dog of the family.

And more of the old things…

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.
