I have painted more then 150 small oil – painting”s. I want at least twice as many before I even start to start to think about what this installation wants.



I try and try , getting used to the W.S. Collection in a frame. But I love them so much more loose, hanging on the doors, experimenting today with black wall and loose style hanging without frame. Like it much more. It’s kind of strange what ever I make it kind of turns into installations..

Sometimes I need to see what my work looks like on a wall , todays sun made a natural spotlight.


Every morning I start with a small painting, they are not bigger than a A4-sized paper, colors tempt me. I need to find whats inside, behind and under..

Painting is an adventure, most of the time following the colors lead, is exiting enough. Sometimes a closer talk / look is wanted, hmm , what does it need? Does it go up or down and does it matter. Isn’t the changeability the itchy good part. This one needs some staring before deciding.up-or-down-annica-delfos

Still doing “the other side”and when  busy, it’s a fun job, but the minutes before .. It starts with the  studio smell , oil paint perfume and then the light on. Brushes, colors and the canvas, in progress, hanging there tempting me..  Oh this asks a lot of discipline. To actually ignore all of it and take place behind the computer and get to work. notebooks

Now there is a need to  build in more time to do administration, photograph work, network, organizing, search for opportunities and so on and so one. That’s the other side. Last year was  “concentration- on- my- painting” year, that was great and is great. Painting feels like the rhythm of breathing. It’s there and it’s not going to disappear. A good feeling. There is now space in my mind again, to broaden my focus, what is happening outside my studio and how can my work connect to people.otherside-of-studio-annicadelfos-961x1024
