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.

Goodbye Glenn Frey

Another great artist has died. This morning I saw on BBC News that Glenn Frey, guitarist in the legendary band the Eagles, has died.

Only a few days ago I read commentarys on Disqus asking which will be the next artist to dig. Now we know, but the question remains.

The Heat Is On

An interesting fact I found in the newspaper Metro, is that Glenn Frey wrote the song ‘ the heat is on ‘ for the film ‘ ‘Beverly Hills Cop’.

I know the song, but I haven’t seen the whole film yet.

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?

A real ‘horror Art Story’ that’s going on just now is the one that is presented for us by IS in places like Palmyra in Syria just now. Terrifying!

 My Horror Painting

I found an illustration in my library for this post (below). It’s from a nightmare (I dream a lot)  where I saw evil creatures in dark threatening storm clouds.                                               I changed the painting before this publishing.

A Touch Of Hitchkock

Continued from Paradise Picture

The Translation App

I have changed the translation app , because in the former app I could not paste text from Word . The old app did not  take a lot of text – not until I had upgraded it to the pro version .

A Touch Of Hitchkock 

Now I have the photo of the bench by the river from the last post to both a black and white image , with the idea to give it a little Hitchkock thriller -touch .


I have also made ​​an impressionistic painting in my creation app. I would like to make my paintings on paper done on canvas, but I have no place where I can have my painting equipment permanently. Therefore, it becomes right now that I do my paintings digitally.
