A Turner Inspired Composition

Shimmering Paintings

Last Sunday evening I sat and listened to a breathtaking piano performance in Mobackenkyrkan in Skellefteå.

The woman who played usually compose her own pieces.

While I was listening, I looked at a digital painting

in my Smartphone (look above) that I did recently. I was thinking about the great artist William Turner and his shimmering paintings with the colour field.


My wife and I visited the Tate Gallery in London this autumn and got there just in time to be able to accompany a guided tour that showed William Turner’s paintings. To see old famous paintings ”live” is an equally great experience like hearing music live. Or even to look at a hockey game in a stadium. It’s exciting.

Picasso And Miro

I made a drawing, which I gave to my dear wife yesterday.

When I was going to bed, I saw that she had colored it. My thought goes a little bit to Picasso. Or Miro, if that name is familiar? And thats here we slide into the culture.

I think I will paint this one on canvas and find a GALLERY in New York.

What do you think about the result? And the coloring?
