2013-06-26 Re-touch of Edition #1 (Klara)-silhouette

I just made a retouch of Edition #1 (Klara)

What do you guys think? Should I have some more splattered paint in the background to this one - but in different colors?
I thought it might be a neat idea, but... it could also ruin the whole painting I feel. Usually I don't ask much for opinions about my art, but what do you think?

Stay as it is - or colored splatter in the background?`
I appreciate all criticism, good and bad.

2013-06-14 Business meeting - SUCCESS!

All your good luck wishes must have done wonders, I will be getting help to start up my own art-company!
But, first the Swedish government must approve of the business idea and handle a bunch of paperwork - before I will officially be in business to sell my works. 

I love each and everyone of you who keeps supporting me, it truly means the world to me 

Lots of Love

Here's another project, this time made with German artist Kevin Bendorf known from Art-Gallery-Bendorf.
Our theme was "Summer 2013" - which is kind of appropriate right now :)

My piece is called 'Make a Wish', it's made with acrylic paint on a canvas (27cm x 22cm).
More of my work is available on:

Kevin's piece is made with watercolors on paper. It's called 'Tuscan Summer house'. You can see more of his stuff at his page:
