Misty morning

this painting shows that you are never alone in the world and that there will always be someone to guide you and help you through life you are never alone you just have to know where to look for comfort like this to figures who are hugging each other and they are helping one another.

Seawater smell

I went to the beach for my painting.It feels so good to do what you really love.The sky was just beautiful.
The fresh wind and the salty water smell.There is no place then the beach and the ocean.(sure and my home)
Hope you like it.Until next time.

Ocean Breeze

I found my old pictures from the ocean.Where we are so often.
The beach was empty what is not very often the case but this time luckily yes.
I had in mind to paint something peaceful and quiet.
I like the way it turned out and I left the people out.So you can dream and smell the wind and enjoy the quiet beach.

Grapes on vine

After months I painted a still life and it was so much fun to do.I like the colors.It looks so bright like the sun in the summer when you have your glass of wine.

Walking figures (2)

We are all voyagers in this world .I started again with the under painting in blue and yellow and than I used golden green and white and red for the fresh splash.
The positions from the people I put with thoughts in because we are all looking for our goal where to go and how we are feeling about it.
Hope you understand what I had in mind.

Golden light 8 x 10

Golden light over the trees.It is so beautiful when the sun shines in the bright colors and everything looks like it is glowing.You can see how strong the light is.So I used my gold and transparent and green.The under painting is done in yellow with some blue and sienna.
I like the simplicity of this painting.

Infinity (Black and Gold) 10 x20

I love to paint more abstract.It is some peace for me in those paintings where I can go beyond the boundaries and play with the colors and lights and the dark's.
It is a different world where I hope you can see something what gives your thoughts and feelings a place to be.
Maybe you don't see the same as I do but I hope you can let your thoughts to be free.
