”Evening Cathedral”

”Kvällskatedral” Oil over acrylic grisaille, on canvas, 60 x 80 cm, Sunbeams from Listers Huvud (Similar painting can be commissioned)

So, at last, we finally ventured to Listers Huvud, our entire family of three kids, my husband and I carrying a little girl each in baby carriers, through the forest, downhill, and then aaaall the way back again. This wonderful setting sun greeted us on our way back uphill. I took more than 800 photos, hehe…

It became obvoius to me that my notorious painting in the last few years  has really made an impact on the way I use my camera. I’m very much aware of lighting and composition, in a way that I was never before. So I don’t have to do much cropping before painting from these wonderful shots from our large, lokal beech forest. It was so wonderful (in this month of may) I felt like I was walking in a rainforest. So many sounds of birds, creaking trees and fresh spring leaves in the wind. Simply amazing.

More of these paintings are coming… for sure.


Springtime Charcoal Fusion; ”Apples on the way” :)


Right now we have four fruit trees in our garden that are full of wonderful blossoms. Three apple trees and one pear tree. I don’t even need to tell you how beautiful they are! I had to paint a few <3


”Apples on the way” 2000 SEK ,

Charcoal, acrylic, oil 60 x 80 cm, on canvas (gallery wrap)

I did an experiment this time. When I view pictures of processes with my oil paintings, I always love the charcoal sketch stage, but then it disappears, never to be seen again… and it’s kind of sad! So I decided to let part of a painting remain in the sketch stage, and only take a part of it all the way to a finished flemish style oil painting. I think it turned out quite interesting :)

Don’t worry about the charcoal drawing smearing, it’s covered in clear acrylic binder :)
