... Since I last posted a journal entry. The passed year has been filled with all the new experiences that comes with becoming a parent, and I haven't had as much time or energy to pour into my paintings as I would have liked to. Anyhow, I'm now officially on parental leave, which seem to be even more time-consuming. I'm gonna try to discipline myself and find time to paint whenever I can. I don't know how many of my watchers read these journals, but I'd like to know if any of you would like me to maybe update these more often and write about my process and thoughts in general? I'm also wondering if any of you are following me on instagram/f

On the 10th of january 2014, I became the proud father of a boy. His name is Charlie, a future nuisance and referencemodel for my paintings.Might produce less art for a while, but I'll be back in full swing eventually. I can't help but to brag and show him off, so here is a link to a photo of him all fresh out of the oven: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4vqNGhJmWY0/UtagHLw5dRI/AAAAAAAACNs/8K9o-Ow9MKg/s1600/1011181_586610498075560_1206170020_n.jpg

One of the deepest and most accomplished gallery I've ever watched !

Your texture-warping ability is truly remarkable, coupled with a great sense of light / shadows, harmony of colors, dimensions ... :clap:

Stunning intensity on all your portraits - human looking or not ;) -

Your creations remind me the visions - sometimes disturbing yet always powerful - of timeless authors like Poe, Baudelaire & Lovecraft, with your unique and authentic touch ; got a feeling of Goya and Delacroix too :nod:

Special mention on your leaves / mushrooms shaping, just brilliant ;)

Your painting style truly carries deep meaning and true colors in this world, between melancholy & sense of humor, tragedy and hope ;

Please just keep it up :)

Thank you so much for sharing, cheers

Wow, thank you very much. You just made my day. I really appreciate those words. Seldom do i feel like someone really gets what I´m trying to do, but I think you do.

Truly incredible stuff! Reminds me of Chet Zar at times. Can't wait to see more. Cheers from Canada!

Thank you very much! Very kind of you!:)
:cake: Happy Birthday!!! :cake:

Man you are macabre genius! :headbang:
