background with a foambrush for makeup

Deer with glitter gel pen. I had the deer on another paper and draw the colors with help of a lightbox

I covered the Tree fairy with paint and made the patterns scraping away paint with an old credit card.

Colorful dining and watercolor test

Fallow deer

Waxwings



 I think the deer and the Waxwings are on the same colorful Dinner party
Photo and digital edits.

I´m searching for a new way to do art without having loads of canvases everywhere. This is a test with watercolor in progress. Not yet finished as can be seen. Not sure this is what I will do. Time will tell.

Little bit of everything

 Click image to enlarge!
Dancing on the wall
This is a photo of a stone wall where I added manipulated copies of the ballet dancer I cut out a few weeks ago. I think this will be a personal favorite 💝



The two pieces above: As my walls are full I am now trying to paint more om paper. I think it works quite well. The paper you can save in a file and don´t have to dust them. But I still have a few canvases that is not painted.

This is the same painting as above but I added some Glow for Rains challenge. 

Glowing swan for Rain


Only my reflection and my young Barbie self left in the Exhibition.

A little bit manipulated in Topaz and Photoshop

A dream
Tempera on Watercolor paper. A4

A few days ago I had a dream that surprised me completely. "Normally" when I dream I have to struggle to get our of it. You know, that kind of "failure" dreams. This dream was different. Nothing really happened more then the image shares. But it was a soft and warm dream so this time I struggled to continue the dream.The "souls" was softer then I managed to do. They did not touch. I tried to visualize the mood. One on paper, the little one is a canvas.

Exhibition Jungle and ice

In the jungle!
Acrylic on water color paper A4

My exhibition in the library. My paintings and my sisters dolls.

Sisters!
This is my sisters work. The doll to the left is my sister and the one beside her in the coat is me.
My sister designed and sew the cloths and hairstyle we actually had at that time in our lives. This is the first time I could convince her to share them on the exhibition. And, people loves all of them. 😄



Flowers frozen in ice
 For Rains Jagged and Ice. The ice is the same, the difference is the light and position.
