March & April Painting Update

Hello everyone! It’s great to be back. The last two months I had a lot of ‚real‘ work to do and I’ve spent some great time visiting my best friend in Berlin, so with the little time I had for painting I decided to skip the documentation part of it and focused only on the artworks themselves.

Now that I have time again I’ve been photographing the paintings and try to catch up with the catalogueing and hopefully soon with my Social Media. I have to say that I missed updating this Blog in particular, because it really helps my work to reflect on it after it’s finished and think about in which directions I want to continue my journey.

This painting series was inspired by the orange & pink colors in the background. It’s usually very hard for me to mix the perfect orange color, I guess I’m too spoiled by screen colors because I can’t seem to make my oranges vibrant enough for my taste.

I’m really inspired to paint bigger at the moment. Because I’m painting at home it’s a bit of a challenge to organize alle my canvases and I don’t want to go really big if they don’t sell immediately. So for the next few weeks I’ve thought about working on paper instead and just try to adapt to the new format.

I have lots of canvas artworks still to upload here though, so I promise to be back at least once a week with an update and some more in depths posts on my process. I’d love to write more about inspiration in particular and show you some of my favorite current artists.
