Digital Paintings in Physical Frames

I've been doing a lot of digital painting lately. Simply because there hasn't been much time to paint. And when there's not much time, digital painting is the far most efficient way to get things done. But all the paintings are just sitting there on my computer now. So I thought, why shouldn't they also…

All the Ways

Life can take us in so many different directions, which will probably, with time, make huge differences in how our lives play out. Some choices you get to make. Others get chosen for you, or are mere coincidences. I guess the key is to find happiness on the road you've ended up. Anyway, that's what…

Finding Home – My First Digital Oil Painting

So, I was a bit sceptic about doing digital oil paintings. I mean, how could they (the developers, that is) manage to get those peculiar brush strokes look just right? Well, I did my first digital oil painting a few evenings ago, and I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised: I'm impressed by how…
