My name is Kim Goksøyr Strande, currently living in Trøndelag, Norway.
In an attempt to find a hobby to spend time on, I started painting in the summer of 2015. I hadn’t done a single painting since kindergarten, but was instantly hooked.
This website was brought to life for my own motivation to keep on going, and to share, collect and document my journey forward from my very first painting.
This way you can follow my progress – or regress – as I go. Either by visiting my complete timeline gallery, reading posts from my different sessions or just checking out my favourite pieces.
In the long run I hope to increase my skills step by step. I didn’t know a thing about either painting or drawing when I started out, and have learned just about everything I know through the internet and hobby books.
During the first three years I used water soluble oil paint for all my paintings. I then started using acrylics, watercolours, pro markers, pens, pencils and digital programs as well, hoping it’ll make me a more complete painter/drawer in the end.
Placid is described as “serenely free of interruption or disturbance”, which is exactly how I feel when I pick up the brushes. A place to get totally engrossed, losing the sense of both time and place.
If you leave a comment or some form of feedback it would mean a lot!
Hope you enjoy!
