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!

Roberta's
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)

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

City of dreams
Watercolor, 2017. Los Angeles, USA.
Skylight and street lights,
Neon signs and moonlit sky,
Free horizons,
The night is coming,
And we're here in the dark,
With all that urgency below,
I've no special place to go,
You have no special thing to do,
We'll just stand here looking out,
over the city of dreams.

Hope you like it!

Alone
Watercolor 2017, Livadia, Tilos, Greece.
Finally everything is calm. All of the bathers have gone home. I'm here in the gap between afternoon and evening, when everyone else in Livadia seems to be at home dressing up for a drink, maybe at Petrino's. My favorite bar. Well, I'm still out here enjoying the last rays from the sun. Alone with my sketch-book and my thoughts. All I can here is the soft waves over the pebble beach and some music and laughter from one of the boats anchored in the bay. Besides that, everything is quiet and the cats are resting in the shadows from the trees. Everything is calm. Waiting for the evening to take hold. Looking out over the bay. Writing a couple of words. Drawing a couple of lines. I'm so happy to bee here!
Hope you like it as much as I did! :) (Smile)

Hideaways
Watercolor, 2017. Somewhere far away and deep within.

I decided to drift away into the free open space.
Maybe to a place far away.
Or to me a place deep within.
Maybe a hideaway to you.
Maybe at home to me.
I stood there on the balcony, where I had just arrived.
Ready to travel through the portal, out into nowhere and everywhere.
Probably nowhere to you.
Most certainly everywhere to me.
I had arrived, but I was going.
On the playlist Moby sang:
"One of these mornings,
it wont be very long,
they will look for me,
but I'll be gone."
Tomorrow I'll be both gone and found.
Gone to you.
Found to me.

Hope you like it!

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.
