Getting Ready for Summer

We've had some great weather the last few days. The sun hasn't even been out. Because there's been nothing to get out from. Blue skies as long as the eyes can see.   With great weather also comes the boat season. People loading up their boats on big trailers, heading to get some water under…

The Lighthouse

This lighthouse ended up looking a bit more futuristic than planned. Almost a bit Star Wars-ee. Like it's R2D2 standing there on the rock, guiding the ships safely through the area. I do like how it turned out, though. There is something about lighthouses which really fascinates me. How they've been placed there in the…

Loose the Way I Like it

I'm really happy with how this painting turned out. The style is loose, the way I like it, but still tight enough to hold it firmly together. The boat also has a kind of human, industrial look about it. Like the kind of guy that would hang around the harbour, I imagine. The painting is…

Waiting for Water

There's just something about boats at land. The contradiction of it all. And how huge they actually look when their whole bow is showing.

A 5 minute fishing trip

Sometimes there are few time gaps through the day. I had 5 minutes to spare a few days ago. Usually I'll spend it checking my phone. Which I do too much these days. So I made the decision that I would use it a bit more productive this time. I wanted to make a quick…
