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.
(This painting is framed with wooden edge frame. Dimensions of the framed painting: 31cm x 41cm)

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.

Holidays are (finally) over and it is time to get back to work.
I must say that the last year was very fruitful for me in every aspect,
so I hope and prey that this one will be even better.

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.

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

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.
