Staying on the safe side

(Lots of) acrylics on canvas.
Also glued some tinnfoil on the canvas, underneath all that paint, to create some extra texture.

This made me happy :)

A girl who ordered a painting from me just posted THIS on her blog :) Totally made my day!

Here is the original (the blue one) and her painting :)


the deepest secret

Watercolours on an A4 paper.
Was impoosible to get a good photo of it.
Started painting this in May in Canada and just finnished it. Painted from my own head and looked at some flowers that was growing in the garden.
Think this is going to be a christmas gift for someone :)

I wanna be pretty like the girls in the magazines

Acrylics on canvas with some "cutouts" from magazines

Is it just my notebooks that looks like this inside?

It's really hard for me to stay focused and take in all the information the teacher gives you while holding a lecture.
I usually end up drawing in my notebook and I just write a few notes down inbetween when he/she sais something I find interesting. Sometimes though, if possible, I draw things that has to do with what the teachers's talking about, that helps me remember it easier!
How do I learn anything in school if what 90% of what the teachers sais just go trough my ears? I read about it myself later on!

Every time I leave my house I enter a beauty pageant

I don't think I'm the only girl who sometimes get sick of the pressure of looking pretty all the time.
In Sweden especially, people are sooooo concoius of their apperance. You simply do not leave your house looking like a slob in this country. And it's a competition out there. The prettiest wins.. ofcourse..
I truly hate that competition.
Sure make-up is fun, but when you feel like you can't leave your house unless all pimples are covered, something's wrong.

Anywhooo.. I tried something I haven't tried before with this drawing. That was to mix in contrast colours, like blue, green and red, where they don't naturally belong, to make all the other colours "pop" more. It worked, I think... Looked way better with the colourful shadows and highlights then it did before I added them :)

Why does art have to look "pretty"?

Something that kind of bothers me is when people don't like your art because it's not  typically realistic or pretty looking, it doesn't look enough like a photo.
I acually think it's 100 times more difficult to do a painting that is unrealistic/abstract that tells a story or shows a feeling, then a realistic "obvious" painting.
After doing some artstudies in school and learning about techniques I finally think I have some good ideas for abstract paintings I want to do. Just gotta find some time with all theese studies...

most expressive paintings i've ever done, from 2009

Found more old paintings

Found a folder with pictures I did during my first year in highscool when I was 16 (2006)
Pretty fun to se how you've developed and how your style has changed :)
I was very into orange, red and yellow colours and lots of sunsets!

Good thing we can get better

This is kind of embarrasing, but so funny I just had to publish it.

The painting to the left is my first attempt to do a selfportrait haha. It's from 2006 (the date in the corner sais 2007 but I took the picture later on), when I was 16 and I had just started the art program in highschool. I could paint other things nice, but not portraits. Aparently.... It's made with Acrylics.
Shortly after this I decided to learn how to do portraits.

The painting to the right is from this year, 2011. Watercolours. From the movie Sucker Punch.

What am I doing?

me right now. messed up knee, art studies to do, cat by my feet etc..

Today I was going to study for school.
I was just gonna go to the hospital and have my knee (that I hurt this weekend) x-rayed, didn't think it would show anything. Turns out I have a small fracture in the knee cap and I've also damaged some muscle thingy that keeps my knee stabile. So now I'm jumping around with this monster-whatever-it-is around my whole leg to keep my knee straight. Took the whole day to se a doctor and get that thing over my leg. How the hekk am I supposed to wear pants over this?

And now I have to study but I'm sitting here posting drawings and writing instead..
What am I doing?
