Paintings aren't always just paint put together in an artistic way, some have stories behind them. Below I share some of what my pieces mean to me. Scroll down to read their stories.
”The lush green forest background with trickles of raindrops just as the sun breaks the clouds above. Rainforest is a sense of calm and how everything can be beautiful, even changing weather. Just take a moment to stop and look. Everything will work out –after the rain, comes the sun.”
”There’s a silver line that cuts the dark plane from the white. The beautiful bubbles are created the same way on either side. The silver lining is that the darker the world around a person is, the more the beautiful shines through. A kind word to a person in despair means a whole lot more than for someone who is happy, but it is difficult to know on which plane someone resides on.”
”What happens inside a person when they get a great idea? The green seed lingers a bit before bursting into a passionate flame. Everything around it starts to vibrate or flow past, depending on if it gets linked with the idea to grown further or moves along for now until the next idea.”
”It’s about creation and new beginnings. How everything is chaotic everywhere around but then small pieces start coming together in different places. Like the universe with its beginnings of collecting together minerals to create something new, ultimately creating water where life could take place. What are the things in your life where life can thrive? And what is just dust you can get rid of or change into something new?”
”Derived from the notion of a seed. How even in the darkness and challenges of the dirt around, with the right encouragement of light and water, amazing growth can happen. What will grow? What will falter? What doesn’t get enough encouragement? What gets too much? How can you see this in your own life right now?”
”Sometimes it can be a very calming mystifying experience of relief to just stare into the cosmos. When was the last time you just spaced out?”
”It’s a creation on the idea of letting go. Letting something go from your grasp and float away to see where the wind might take it. Is there something you need to let go of? A thing, a thought, yourself? Be forgiving, be brave ̶ let it go, let it soar.”
Life's Curveballs & Life's Curveballs II
”Sometimes life just deals you one pummel after another. It depicts the harshness that can be thrown your way, but also a reminder in being strong enough to brace oneself and not take it lying down.”
Sommar, sommar, sommar
”Title inspired from a famous song in Sweden written by Sten Carlberg. It is a song the artist strongly associates with her grandparents. The soaring bubbles with the falling elderberry flowers and the calm lush green background, tells of how fleeting the summer can be. A reminder to hold on to the things we have when we have them, and remember those beautiful summer days.”
”Sometimes it can be very calming mystifying experience of relief to just stare into the details of life.”
”Take a breath of fresh air and relax. Breathe. Otherwise you might miss a sign from above, possibilities by chance or help from an unexpected source.
Feather representing a traditional message from above, either from an angel, dove or perhaps a stork.
Seeds from an Elm tree representing something small that can grow into a large protective tree.”
”Sometimes you just have to let things fall into place on their own. Let go of that control and let things fall where they may. It often turns out better than expected in the end.”
”Dramatic storytelling through the ages, reflected in real life drama. The bubbles are being guided through the story, visiting different environments and feelings. In the piece one can see the inspiration of classical theatre masques, court jesters patterned clothes and comic-book layout. So many ways to tell a story. So much wonderful drama.”
”There’s something magical about moonlight. Creating a different atmosphere with the same light of day but reflected off the moon. This slight change of view can give a whole new perspective on things.”
