Looking Back To Where It Started

To get a clear view of where you are, you need to know where you started. At least I guess that's true. Well, I was browsing through my media library on wordpress the other day. And suddenly I'd reached the bottom. Not in the depressing way it might sound like.. The bottom being my first…

A Painting With Few Words

I'm a bit lost for words today. Not because I'm surprised, angry, sad or excited. They are just missing, in an empty kind of feeling. Not empty in a bad way. Just empty. I still want to post a painting, though. A painting that doesn't need too many words. Just a painting that is what…

Still Fishing

Still Fishing – The Freedom of Not Selling, For Someone Who Doesn’t Sell

This digital painting was made without the following thoughts in mind. But when I looked at it afterwards, I felt that it resonated with them. And the thought is, more precisely, how good it is to have taken a step back. A step to where I actually belong at the moment. A lot of fleeting…

Winter Night – My First Polar Bear!

There is a myth here in Norway, that tourists come to us expecting to see polar bears walking around in the streets. I assume the myth is quite exaggerated, but it's a fun one. We don't have polar bears on the mainland, to be clear, but you can find them on the island Svalbard. Needless…

Foam and Friends – Another Ship

I wrote in my last post about how much fun I had painting a ship. One of those old ships, that looks like they've been sailing for years on end. Well, there was no doubt in my mind that I need to paint another one. And I needed to do it straight away. This version…

My Ship – Making Digital Look Less Digital

I've been using Procreate a lot lately, making digital paintings. It's so easy to pick up, when I don't have the motivation to pull out all the supplies I need for physical mediums. A way to keep creating, no matter where you are. Anyway, a lot of my paintings have been made using different types…

Back With a Fan Brush – And a Bit Too Excited

I've been going through my painting equipment lately. Selling what I don't use, to be able to spend more time with what I enjoy most. I knew there was a lot of stuff in the first category, but I have to say that I was amazed. I had loads of brushes, now I have about…

Rounding Up the Ink

I've had a real hang-up about ink painting lately, which has been a lot of fun. A lot of them didn't go as planned, though, and had to move straight to the bin. But some of them ended up looking rather cool. And here are a few of them: There are a lot of similarities…

Alone

There is something very overwhelming about wild nature. It's so real, yet separate from our lives. A reminder of what we've come from, that is easy to forget.   I've always been impressed by those who spend time alone in the wild. It's something I want to experience myself. To be able to master it's…

A Bad Day – In a New Way

Just to be clear, I am not having a bad day. But these two are: And the new way I'm referring to in the title, is this papery look I've added to the background. At least I hope that's how it looks to others than myself... I don't think I'll walk much further down this…
