In the October-issue of American Art Collector Magazine my painting “Swimming at the cliffs” have a full spread!
Yes, I am proud. And my wife is too because she is the model 🙂
This is probably the world’s most important magazine for art-collectors and read by thousands of art lovers. A very good opportunity to be seen in the US.
A special thanks goes to Steven Diamant at Arcadia Contemporary in New York
and John O´Hern at American Art Collector Magazine.
Now I am ready with my “Golden girl”
This is one of the most time-consuming paintings I have done. Not strange with all those sun-reflections.
I am quite happy with the result. The illusion of the strong light works well I think.
Today I will varnish it and tomorrow it will ship to Gallery DivArt in Mexico.
Here is my latest painting called “Skogens”
It’s an acrylic and oil on canvas. 38″x 20″ 97x51cm
I did a little break in my figurative works and painted this old bottle for a change.
I found it in the forest some years ago and the swedish text says
something like “The forest carbon Corp. vinegar factory”
The letters in the glass is of course the big challange here. So much details to struggle with. But fun of course. I like the old glass where the background gets distorted.
I have collected and painted a lot of glass bottles but this one has become one of my favorites. Here are some older paintings of the same bottle.

Last weekend my wife and I was in Barcelona for a few days just to relax and get a break from the big project of moving to our new house.
At the Museu Europeu d’Art Modern (MEAM) witch really is worth a visit if you like realistic and figurative paintings, it was nice to find the paintings “Lace” that the museum bought from me a couple of years ago.
My wife and I just bought this old school from 1890 and we are moving there in a few weeks.
The sports hall will be my new studio. 72 square meters! Time for BIG paintings 🙂
There is still a lot to renovate but this is alreadyour dream home.
