I have only had a few of my abstract paintings out on exhibitions. I'm been missing something. That "something" I have then begun to paint in the form of animals. Both in itself abstract and together with an abstract background.
I draw the animal in the motif, and subsequently I paint an abstract background. Then I integrate the main motif with paint and pencil strokes of different kinds.
I have good energy and desire to work when I am in the process, and I like the pictures a lot.
Mixmedia, 40 x 50 cm on canvas board.
to paint a series of animals and abstract painting. The series can both be enjoyed for the colorful animal characters themselves, but I also wanted to weave in expressions of more symbolic layers. Still, my starting point is my joy at animals and nature, and my attitude about the importance of preserving animals and nature.
In the abstract form, I look beyond / into behind the animals' realistic appearance, and also try to create a modern, and more original expression than I do in my realistic art.

I am currently experimenting. I had long wanted to mix Animaldrawings and abstract painting. Here I draw the animals freehand in graphite and then start painting the background. Even I love the lines of this kind of drawings - much alive and searching - most of them will be covered with paint. I will add graphite again and colored pens of different kinds. But the initial drawing will dissapear. Final painting to be shown later. Deer are on Hahnemuhle Bamboo paper and bear on canvas board. #animalandabstractpainting #lovelines #loveabstract #loveanimaldrawings #acrylicpainting #oilpencils #graphite #coloredpencil
