Road 37

After not-so-long time I am presenting you a new artwork. That is because this one was laying around unfinished and I needed to do that, finish it. I started it in the winter of this year. It is a little bit of a continuation of my artwork „Greetings to a grey lake“,...

May and June and the never ending quest of finishing a painting

May and June and the never ending quest of finishing a painting

Finishing a painting might seem like a simple think to do when one thinks about it. But when one tries to do it in reality, there are many, many turns that are often taken, which result in a seemingly never ending journey. As an artist, I know this all too well. There...

Night swimmers

Night swimmers

My new painting is called "Night swimmers" and it is quite a large one too, measuring 100 x 130 centimetres. The inspiration for this painting came from a real life event last summer when I saw 4 young men having a bath in the middle of the night in a lake. I felt...

Improving my oil painting art materials

Improving my oil painting art materials

Secret friend

Secret friend

I am here with a new artwork called "Secret friend". The name is quite a poetic one and I decided to title it like this because I felt like this place is so ordinary, but secret place. Perhaps no one really stops by it but someone knows about it. It is inspired by the...

Art in it´s making is a great mystery unraveling

Art in it´s making is a great mystery unraveling

I love the creation of art. The process. Why that is? Because it means unveiling a great mystery. A great treasure. The thought or the idea that I have prior to that is the clue to what it´s gonna be about. The process means playing with my imagination and the paints...

2023 trip around Norway, part 2

Day 9, Glomfjord hotel The next day the weather was not good and the prognosis was not looking good either, so we packed our tent once again, and this time, we headed south. As we were driving we did not really see that many camping sites, only a few. We decided to...

Trip around Norway, summer 2023, part 1

How many years has it been since I went to Norway? So many. 9 actually. And so many paintings born from this quiet longing. It was so many years that I had stopped hoping for going there in the near future. But in July 2023, I was there in real life for two weeks. I...

The starting months of the year

The starting months of the year

At the very beginning od February I travelled to the city of Bratislava to take down the exhibition and take my artworks home. The exhibition was actually prolonged to the end of February, because the response was so positive, which warmed my heart a lot. The...
