Trosa harbor in cardboard

      Another cardboard building. This time the buildings in Trosa harbor. It's fun building things in cardboard. You learn how the pieces match together and you lern by doing misstakes. I use cardboard that otherwise would have gone to recycling, so if I cut a piece the wrong way it isn't the end of… Continue reading Trosa harbor in cardboard

Paint on rocks and give them to friends

   I say it again, paint on rocks is fun. This rock I gave to friends last Christmas. I painted their house in winter landscape. They appreciated the gift. No one else had painted their house on a stone before. Anna

Lemur

Lemur It's difficult to paint animals, but this lemur actually looks like a lemur, I think. Att måla djur tillhör inte mina styrkor. Jag försökte mig på att måla en lemur och hade väldigt roligt när jag målade den. Anna

Ladder of life

   Watercolors on re-used cardboard. I did the background first and then I got the idea of making a big ladder with tiny people climbing on it. What do you think? Anna

E.T. is back?

A couple of years ago I found an E.T. stone. It was shaped as his head. I tried do put some color on the stone to make it look even more like him. Since then he has a place in our garden by the sea, keeping his eyes on us. He's out all year long,… Continue reading E.T. is back?

Three little angels/Tre små änglar

Misty window

Weather, creating fog on the window may not belong to the favorites, but the mist often create beautiful patterns on the windows. When the sun once again appears, windows can look like shimmering paintings. I tried using colored paper and light pastels to paint fog on the window. The result you see here. Väder, som… Continue reading Misty window

Pink elephant/Rosa elefant

One day I found a rock that looked like a pink elephant. Well, I thought, I picked it up and see if I could paint the stone so it looked even more like an elephant. The stone was pinkish, so I didn't have to use much color at all. Just some lines and shadows here… Continue reading Pink elephant/Rosa elefant

Puffin/Lunnefågel

Another effort in trying to paint or draw animals. Puffins have beautiful colors and I tried to catch them on paper with my pastels crayons. Ytterligare ett försöka att måla djur. Lunnefåglar bär väldigt vackra färger, vilka jag ville försöka fånga på papper med mina pastellkritor. Anna

Something borrowed, part 1

It started as a thought, that turned into a test-painting, then it escalated in several paintings. I did a "cover" on a painting a friend of mine did and discovered how fun it was to interpret other painters paintings in my own way. Not to copy them, just lend the motive and the paint it in… Continue reading Something borrowed, part 1

You are my rock

With oil pastels this picture is possible to make. Lots of colourful fields make a rock with some water below as a mirror. You can turn the picture around if you like and get another point of view. The painting is on red paper. That gives an effect together with the pastel colour. If you… Continue reading You are my rock
