Acrylic

Finally the collection of my acrylic paintings is on line.

Most of the paintings are made from photos from our round the world trip 1989-1990. A few are made as orders. For instance a friend or customer showed me an image and asked if I could paint that on canvas or hardboard.

The genre could be called realism. I thought it was called magic realism but I learned that that genre refers to realistic paintings with one or more magic details in the picture.

After a few years in the basement collecting dust, some of them has been moved up to a wall in the living room.

The risk

Living on one side of a lot of water and working on the other and the only connection is a bridge + tunnel there is always a risk being stuck on one or the other side. If it’s good or bad getting stuck probably depends on the circumstances. Yesterday (Wednesday 18/11) me and my fellow carpool friends got stuck on the Danish side due to a truck that apparently was affected by the strong wind and blocked the road around 16.30. After some time walking around Fields shopping centre we decided to drive to a Metro station and take public transport over to the other side of the sound. The bridge opened again for the car traffic around 21.00. I arrived home 21.30 with public transport…

In the 3 years we have been living in Malmö this was the third time I was stuck in Denmark but this was the first time it took such a long time for it to open again.

Of course there is a risk driving over a bridge and under a long tunnel everyday but I guess there is a risk just being…

I found a number of photos in our photo library and after some Photoshop treatment I uploaded them.  They are  displayed in a random order.

Airbrush

Back in the 80’s,  I had a little studio in a basement in the small Swedish town Falkenberg. The studio that was called Noggin*, had a silk printing set where I printed T-shirts and sweatshirts. There was also a large drafts table where I draw print designs and did some airbrush paintings.

For a couple of years I created a christmas card that I sent to customers and friends. In -87 I made some postcards that Vibe and I brought with us (togehter with a ski box full of sweatshirts) to the Three Vallées in France, where we spent a skiseason. We sold the sweatshirts and postcards at the After Ski pubs – good times. 🙂

On the original size painting of this post card, the tools are in scale 1:1…

*Noggin means head and Noggin the Nog was the name of a British childrens character – a viking. I got Noggin as nickname from some english friends I had back in the 80’s. The pacifier was a kind of “logo” I used…
