“My Heart is a Myth” – Oil Painting Complete

Hello everyone! Hope you all have had an amazing summer and are getting in the mood for fall. After the "Blood, Ash and Bone" collection was completed I had this urge to go from discussing connections of minds and people to inner heart spaces. The first of which you...

“Wardens of the Land” – Oil Painting Complete

Here it is! The final and last painting I had planned for the "Blood, Ash and Bone" collection. This painting never made it to either of the shows, but it was actually one of the original concepts. It was always intended to be the counterpart to the painting "Keepers...

“Blood, Ash & Bone” – Oil Painting Complete

So, here it is - the last and final painting in the series - from which I got it's name! It feels immensely bittersweet writing this blog post as I know now a huge part of my life the past 9 months is now coming to an end. Before this collection, I hadn't painted...

“Salt of the Earth” – Oil Painting Complete

Here we are, already closing in on the end of the series now! This painting was the 7th out of 8 paintings made for this collection and it is the only up close and personal portrait in the series. It is in fact the largest face I've ever painted - and I gotta say - I...

“The Bond” – Oil Painting Complete

Today I will be writing about the 6th painting in my "Blood, Ash & Bone" series called "The Bond"! Gosh, it took me forever to name this painting. I knew what the painting was about but it was difficult to find the right title to express it. "The Bond" is a...

“Memory” – Oil Painting Complete

Today I am sharing the painting "Memory" which was a concept I made before I even knew I was going to have a solo show! This was way back end of August when farmers were starting to create hay bales and they littered the countryside around my home. I think they are...

“Spirit Guides” – Oil Painting Complete

I am so excited to share this next piece with you all as I feel like it is the grounding stone in the collection. It was the piece created in the middle and I feel influenced several other works afterwards (like the inclusion of bullfinches in "From the Ashes"). Hey,...

“The Communion” – Oil Painting Complete

I am excited about sharing this painting as it was the first time I ever got the chance to paint my step-daughter Dharma! Back in the creation phase, I sketched this out quickly the day before we were heading out to the woods. It was a half fledged idea but the moment...

“From the Ashes” – Oil Painting Complete

Here is the next painting in the new collection! This painting is called "From the Ashes" and is a difficult one to share online as it is so detailed that a lot sadly gets lost on the screen (so if you're in the Skara area - do come check it out on the 31st of May at...

“Keepers of Nothing” – Oil Painting Complete

Wow - the day has finally come where I can put down my paint brush and simply share all that I have been working on for nearly 9 months now. This painting wasn't the first concept in the entire collection but it was the first I painted and now last I finished! I went...
