Watercolor 2017, Los Angeles, USA. 
It's warm outside tonight, but it's even warmer inside. The walls are shaking with the music and I can hear people laughing in the bar. I'm just outside to get some air and catch my breath. Watch the stars and the scenery. Maybe I'll take a walk down to Hermosa Beach? No, I think I'll just return back in to my friends, to the heat and to my dreams...
Hope you like it!
Shanghai Dawn
Watercolor, 2017, Shanghai, China. I just finished this painting today! It's a memory from a marvelous trip to Shanghai back in 2013. I took an early morning walk every day along The Bund. The sunrise over Pudong skyline was so amazing! Although Shanghai is a really large city, everyone was so relaxed during their morning walks and runs along The Bund. After a couple of days, some nice people even said hello and it made me feel welcome. I always stopped a while to look at the old men with their beautiful kites defying the winds. It was a poetic feeling. I love Shanghai!
Hope you like it! 
NYC Nostalgia
Watercolor 2017, New York City, USA.
Spring is so cold here that I actually consider to buy a new winter jacket on the current sale. I can't help feeling that it would actually work all year around here in Sweden... I think it was the gray and cold weather that made me get an acute NYC abstinence a few days ago. I looked at my pictures from there and felt that I needed to paint one of the colorful places that amazed me. This is my version of the small burger restaurant called Burger Joint, located in Le Parker Meridien. I just loved the feeling in that place and the sign "We don't spit on your food so please don't write on our walls" against the walls which were filled with tags and names all over. :)
Hope you like it! 
Watercolor, 2017. Brooklyn, NYC, USA.
Outside getting some air and catching my breath during one of those wonderful nights which you don't want ever to end. Among warm people in this warm little restaurant just talking, talking, improvising and watching the scenery. You should really come down here. Yea, I hope I will meet you outside one evening...
Hope you like it!
Neon Dreams
Watercolor 2017, high above New York City, USA.
She's asleep now.
Her neighbors think the blue neon is disturbing.
They have filed complaints.
But she doesn't mind. Not at all.
She loves the light, especially during those gloomy nights.
It makes her dreams feel heavenly.
It keeps the nightmares away.
It makes her dreams blue as the morning sky,
that wakes her up.
With the view of Central Park West,
glowing in the sunrise.
This is her dream.
Her neon dream...

Hope you like it!
Seeing you looking at me
Watercolor, 2017. Old Town, Stockholm, Sweden.

I know she's an artist,
But I don't know her name.
She has her apartment,
not far away.

I pass by her window,
at the stairs home from work.
I see how she's working,
with colors and brush.

I see in her eyes,
that she lives for her art.
Only wish I could meet you,
and share all my thoughts.

Then one cold dark eve,
she looked down at me.
Her window was open,
it was open to me.

She said "hey, I've finished",
"shall we go for a walk?"
We met by your door and
you showed me your art.

We walked around town,
and lost track of time.
Just continued to talk,
just continued our walk.

And words became magic,
they lit up our souls.
United our hearts,
under the shimmering stars.

Hope you like it! For the artist looking out the window I got inspiration from the profile picture of my friend Thesadkid. Thanks buddy!! She's a really great artist so do check out her beautiful watercolors!! :D (Big Grin) 
Bar Centro
Watercolor 2017, Kyrkogatan, Göteborg, Sweden.
Finally i finished a painting of my favorite coffee bar and place to take a break, relax and talk to people! This is Bar Centro in my hometown Göteborg. Hope you like it!
Hi everyone! :) (Smile) 

I have just finished a weekend of exhibition during the event "the Culture Walk /Kulturvandringen" in Mölnlycke. It was a FANTASTIC experience with lots of visitors! I had such a great time talking to everyone and receiving feedback on my paintings! I'm really grateful that so many of you came by to talk to me and to look at my art!!! It was amazing and HUGE THANKS to everyone! Right now I'm pretty exhausted from all the positive energy, but I can't wait to see everyone again next year! :D (Big Grin) 

Here's a picture of me standing by my painting "Early morning walk" and with my son's ink drawing called "Rainbow land" just below!

Take care and stay creative!! Heart

Painting is my passion. Expressing myself through pictures has always been very important to me and a very personal thing for me. I mainly work with watercolor and my pictures are mostly personal reflections of places I have visited or dream about visiting. I'm fascinated by big city nights and the lives we live during the night time. I believe that this is the time when we all become more open and are more human than machines. When there is time for other thoughts than about your job and every-day life. There is time for night walks, talks, thoughts, fantasies, love and passion. It's during that time we all can be Neon Natives...

A second passion is music, but thats another story. If you like you can check me out on Soundcloud.

After patting your belly for eating a delicious burger, you hear the doorbell ring. You get up slowly as the burger, fries and milkshake you ate has made you quite tired and heavy. You pass some gas and then burp while making your way to the door. You unlock the door and open it to find a short, Oldman with yellow skin standing there. He wore big, round, thick and frameless glasses. He had white long sleeve shirt with a blue tie, dark green dress pants and a cane in one hand. The old man was looking up at the sky and then pulled out a handkerchief to wipe the sweat from his forehead “Well you’re certainly doing your job today Mr. Sun” said the old man. He then adjusted his glasses but the suns beams on his lenses caused him to suddenly light his dress shirt on fire “Oh no, oh well I might as well say what I came here to do. Um my name is Hans Moleman and I was paid five cents by MobisNewNest to come here and thank you for favoring a piece in his gallery. Have a nice day” said Hans. He then turns around and walks off into the distance while still on fire.

Wow, Hans what an exciting story and what a special mission you've got! Thanks for going through all that effort to deliver this message. I really hope that the fire didn't do any damage buddy. Please tell MobisNewNest that I really enjoyed the piece and that I wish him and you a wonderful and creative day!! :) (Smile)
