When thinking of India or Mexico or some other countries, warm and abundant use of colors come to mind. Today I am sharing some new tile designs with happy colors. They are also inspired by the Mediterranean style of tiling, as they have a geometric pattern, but with a different color scheme.
Today I am featuring some new tile designs on the site. All designs are in teal blue and green colors with a hint of turquoise. Traditionally those are bathroom colors, but they are also beautiful for a kitchen. There are several ways to tile a space and the designs I am showing today work best if they alternated with other designs or just plain colored tiles. All of them have a geometric symmetrical design.
Good news for lovers of lighthouses: I’ve added several new paintings with a lighthouse theme. In this world filled of challenges we need beacons of hope and light and promises of a better future ahead. All paintings are derived from 3D renders and then hand painted to create the desired effects. The first one shows a dreamy sunset and a magical depth of waters:
Then the second one has a beautiful soft blue turquoise pastel light:
The last one is a variation on this theme in a warm brown blue color setting. And the cat Knor has managed to find a place for herself next to the lighthouse as well 🙂
Are you looking for new art for on your wall? If you love flowers, you’re in for a treat today! I’ve created a series of new paintings with floating flowers. Dreamy and original artwork for the romantic soul … I’m starting with a magnolia seascape:
And as I found the magnolia flower beautiful to have some fun with, here is another one, together with an anemone:
The next one is also with these same flowers, yet in another color setting with some blue:
The last one shows a sunflower and marguerite daisy flower in a romantic hazy light:
All paintings are created with the help of 3D software as well as unique brushes made in Photoshop. And as you can see, they all have a beautiful sunset 🙂
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I’ve made some photo collage pillows in different colors. You can add all your favorite photos, for instance family or baby photos or your travel or pet photos. All designs have a painted background and an elegant framing around each photo. The first pillow is a blue one:
When choosing lighting for your office, child’s room or your living room, it is important to give some thought into what kind of atmosphere you are looking for. During daytime a lamp will have a different effect than when you light it in the evening. In the evening it will “pop” more and have more impact. For an office you might like a more cool light, which makes blue colors a good choice. That will also help you to stay awake. In your kid’s room, you may like a more soothing atmosphere and pastel colors will work better. In a living room pastels can give a romantic and feel-good atmosphere. However, if you’re a single man, that might not be what you’re after: a more neutral color choice will be more effective for you.
I’ve created quite a few new lamps, and I will showcase just a few here today. You can choose whether you want a tripod or standing lamp. To begin, a lamp with a beach scene with dunes. Very relaxing for a bed room:
Apparently wine wasn’t always like it is today. Of course, like everything, it is always developing. But recently I read something that got me thinking about wine. The author mentioned that in ancient times, wine had different ingredients. And with the thought of Jesus turning water into wine, it referred to wine actually being more like a divine elixir. I know it seems to some to be like that today as well 🙂 , but still …
I love that idea, don’t you? Hope we’ll find the magical ingredients again!
Anyway, I wanted to start today’s post with some new paintings with a wine theme (and got distracted). My latest one is a still life in a classic style: wine with grapes and cheese and a sunflower:
And then I also made another painting in a different style with champagne. This is a beautiful painting to celebrate love, great as a wedding gift or just to be in a happy mood. I chose a contemporary light grey as background color, which also makes it fit in most modern interiors. So bring on the bubbles:
It looks like I will be creating more art with a wine theme, but until then you can find more art with a wine theme in the art gallery
Are you planning a new kitchen or bathroom or do you want to add a new touch to your existing space? Today I am featuring some new tile ideas. With your choice of tiles you can completely change the atmosphere. I’ve created several collections of geometric tile designs, which you can combine to create a colorful and stylish outlook. You can find them on the website. But today I am showing some new designs that can be used as “one of a kind”. By surrounding them with uni-colored tiles you can create your own style. The first tile I would like to show you is a landscape design tile, featuring a mountain range with some trees at sunset. The blue colors are especially relaxing. Great to dream away while soaking in the bath 🙂
The last couple of months I have been exploring the ancient Goddesses, as you may have seen in a painting of the Goddess Freyja. I have found some interesting articles claiming that not only Freyja, but also Mary Magdalen are representing the same energy that is filed under the caption “Venus”. I found that a quite bold statement and at the same time a challenging concept. Are there really more gods? Or is there just one? In the Europe of the Middle Ages, people obviously thought quite differently about religion than we do now. And by that time the witch hunt (goddess hunt?) was fierce. No more Venus, no more black cats. In fact it is hard to find a black cat in Europe that doesn’t have any white hairs even today. If I psychically tune into Venus, she was so much more than just beauty and sensuality. All these goddesses, be it Bastet, Aphrodite, Venus or Freyja stand for wisdom and joy, together with the harmony between black and white or good and evil. The rise above the duality we are facing today. Also the black cat is not a dark entity, but rather a light being filled with love and wisdom. It’s this higher wisdom that was so much feared by the churches.
Anyway, I’ve attempted to create a painting of Venus, not in her usual nakedness, but as an innocent angel-like goddess in her divine purity. The cat Knor* stands for wisdom and sensuality, as she strokes the legs of Venus. The blackbird is singing in the tree as she watches them.
* The word “Knor” refers to the inner spirit or light being of felines
Today is #Caturday and my favorite day of the week 🙂
I’ve created several new paintings with cats,as they are always such a joy to make! So I hope you want to explore with me and add some joy to your heart. The first one shows two kitties on a jetty in a warm embrace. They are watching the sunset over the water together:
And I couldn’t resist this threesome on a swing at the beach, in the lovely colors of a warm setting sun:
The third painting I’d like to share today shows Knor as she is happy to see you after chatting with her friends the seagulls. So this is another painting with a jetty and also a water theme:
The color schemes of these three paintings fit nicely together, so you can also place them in each other’s vicinity or next to each other.
