On a Wet Afternoon

Rain sometimes makes for interesting effects. And Dusk being my favourite time of day, I indulged myself in Cirencester.

A Parisian Wink

Don’t think I ever posted this one. From a walkabout quite a while back, in the city that is so beautiful under the sun – and so depressing when it’s raining.

Bruges Impressions – Cross Over

I was very lucky to visit Bruges on a clear, mostly sunny day. Its canals make for spectacular views. A friend, Jon,  made me notice: Bruges, in my eyes, is blue! As Stockholm is orange, now that I figured Bruges out ;o)

Feeling like doing just that!

Cyclist in Bruges is one I made with a person. I don’t include many people in my paintings, because I don’t want to invade their privacy, even if the painted faces look nothing like the original wearers.

I like this one.  The light was just fantastic!

Zum Fransiskaner

Change of pace, and location. On a cold Winter day along the quays of the Old Stockholm, this beautiful building from 1906, on a site dating back to the 15th Century, originally founded by German monks.

Once Upon a Road Trip

I often shun Motorways in England. They’re great to get somewhere fast, but don’t let you experience  much on your way to wherever you’re going.

So when I happen on the perfect mix of gnarly trees, a thatched roof house, a dramatic sky and the right light conditions, I have to stop by the side of the road, which isn’t easy everywhere, carefully walk to the appropriate spot, and capture what I see in my mind.

This was taken in the New Forest, Hampshire, on my way to Lyndhurst.

Ewelme Cottage

An inviting and cozy cottage in Ewelme. The British are impeccable landscapers, as attests this place.

The skies were pretty dark, which made for a colour rich study.

Alleyway – Cotswolds, UK

The Cotswolds, famous for hundreds of honey-coloured limestone villages in beautiful rural settings, is a must see if you happen to be in England.

I’ve been exploring that area and found beautiful places and very picturesque scenes. You need only open your eyes. The rest is automatically done for you.
