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!

Left Turn

A short stint in Bruges last year. This, my first in the series.

Bruges has canals and cafés aplenty. Choose your spot and enjoy.

Clovelly – no heels allowed

Get good shoes and you’ll have your cardio done by the end of a treck through Clovelly, a very old fishing village in the Torridge district of Devon, England.

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.

Down by the River

Nice blue skies, water and a bridge make for a happy traveller.

Cirencester After the Rain

Wanted to, but did not eat at the Crown. I had quite a bit of road to cover and night was falling. I just enjoyed the sight against the bright, soon to be night sky.

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.
