Vaerloese, Denmark

Every time I start a new work I am curious to see what will emerge. The process is unpredictable, as is the result. It is a continuous source of enjoyment to play with shapes and colors. I use acrylic paint on canvas, and I prefer big canvases. The colors are applied as blobs, stripes and splashes with mottled randomness. Sometimes I work in shades, sometimes contrasting colors. I mix the colors on the canvas, using a brush, spatula, sponge, whatever. I let the painting and colors work, and see what comes up. Then I grasp it, work it further, and shape it. We cooperate, the painting and I.

It is more like I let the painting tell something that makes people happy. I hope people will have a good experience when they see my paintings, and it will make their day better. If a person enjoys my painting, I am satisfied.
