Empty plate

- No Comments -

 

Still life oil painting of an empty plate.

 

Empty plate is something that always reminds me of sadness and melancholia. One of the reasons

is that we had a period in our lives when we were poor and hungry. Another reason is that it reminds me

of spiritual emptiness, which is even worst than the physical emptiness, and I have been there also, on the

dark side, burdened and depressed.

 

I am thankful to God that now our need are fulfilled and our bodies and souls are satisfied, so I can

look back and paint my memories.

“Mrs. Sonia”, portrait

- No Comments -

 

This is portrait of Mrs. Sonia, artist from Denmark. I had a chance to meet her this winter.

She is brave lady with an amazing life story and that is what I try to catch in this portrait.

The painting is not perfectly rendered, because I wanted to show the human beauty beside the marks that life puts on us.

Viktor

 

This is portrait of my older son Viktor (9).

He loves Minecraft, pixel art and has a dream to become scientist.

Few years ago, he told me that he would make a machine that can make us invisible.

 

I hope you will do it one day, son. We all need to be invisible sometimes.

Nutshell – day 67

This painting is a tribute to Alice In Chains, 
one of the bands I love a lot and had huge influence on me.

 

Nutshell

 

We chase misprinted lies

We face the path of time

And yet I fight

And yet I fight

This battle all alone

No one to cry to

No place to call home…

Piece of cake

 

Today is day 48 of my project “100 days of mini art”.

To be honest, sometimes it is very hard to choose what to paint,

but sometimes is just piece of cake.

The salt of the earth

 

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless,

how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything,

except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”

Gospel of Matthew, 5:13

Chocolate candies – day 34

Chocolate candies

New Year is coming and our house is full of chocolates, candies and lollipops. Our kids are happy and so are we :)

Few days ago, our dear friend Sissel bring us some chocolate candies from “Freia”, Norway. Today, as I was giving some of them to my kids, I dropped the package by accident and the candies spilled on the table. Colors of the candies and the table, together with the shadows – it was beautiful composition. I had to paint them. Well, take a look.

And yes, we eat all those candies later. Sorry.
