yellow rose anthropromorphism
yellow rose anthropromorphism

I´m interested in exploring anthropromorphism so there are a  few creepy cherub faces within the flowers. A contrast exists between straight lines and curves, modern and old, and  the  grey skyscrapers in the background are a pointer to the present and the future. The poem written on the left is by JRR Tolkein called Bilbo´s Last Song. Thought it might be interesting to make the wall feel delicate like paper and yet strong at the same time. The idea as a whole is about change and how the present and the past are closer than we like to think.

Worked some more on an old painting. It´s about the cycle of life.

A Cold Swim
A Cold Swim

A few years ago we visited a lovely city called Füssen in the lowers Alps. Beautiful and not as touristy as expected considering the close proximity to Schloss Neuschwanstein. I have always had images of the lakes and the cold blue river in my mind and carried away with me images of thick snow, heavily laden branches of pine, a lone whistler, expansive views and the cold quiet of a midwinter´s day.

The illegal trade in animals is terrible and many birds and animals die whilst in transit. This painting tries to show the beauty of wild birds – we can not own them – they must be free.

Eternity with birds and ants
Eternity with birds and ants

Inspired by the eternity symbol. The symbol is painted on a wall, which dissolves into sky. The ants crawl into the symbol and change into birds.

Working on a square canvas is sometimes difficult. Finally completed this one after changing the background colours many times. Later it needed something to cut across the horizontal lines, so added some birds flying out of yellow, black and white boxes.

The Ardennes – Bourscheid Luxembourg

A simple landscape taken from a photo I took near by the Bourscheid castle in the Ardennes. This photo of the painting was taken by night. I will include a photo taken during the day to show the variation of colours.
