The color blue is a classic color that never goes out of fashion. In my blue paintings, where the starting point is biology in nature, the blue tones are most often decoded as sky or sea. My blue colors most often fade into turquoise, they make the painting warmer in expression. I often paint in monochrome, where the blue tones flow into each other in a calm flow. As a contrast to the blue, I love fluorescent pink, purple, green and orange.

Blue is not just blue - The color comes in many tones and shades. Hue indicates whether it is blue-purple, pure blue or green-brown. Light value indicates how light or dark a color is. Color strength indicates how pure the color is. If a color is very dusty, there is a lot of black or white mixed into the color.

My paintings are colorful and light in expression. I have a large selection of colorful paintings here in the webshop. Many of our homes have become more simple and stylish in colour. We have white walls, wooden floors and bookcases, and maybe a sofa in dusty blue or grey. The calm, stylish look can easily be given a little more energy with a colorful painting. In the painting, the colors are used vividly and playfully, the colors give life, but also have light and calm. Colorful paintings do not have to be screaming bright colors, when the rest of the decor is very calm, not so much color is needed before life and energy are created. Paintings with light pastel colors in the background or dusty dark earth tones are often very pleasant to have in the interior. I often put the brighter colors in the foreground and in the details of the painting, so that they do not become dominant in the expression.
