MONKS - one of my favorite characters to paint

MONKS in a row. MONKS on a table. MONKS on a wall. ๐Ÿ—ฟ

The sculpture (to the left) was made last year and it's my first. But not my last. I sure do hope to create more sculptures during this year and in the future because I can so easily imagine them beeing wonderful pieces not just for indoor decoration, but also for outside use. ๐Ÿ—ฟ

The collection of monasteries called KLOSTER Nidarholm and KLOSTER Lindisfarne are made out of polystone and each piece are handpainted by me. They are so wonderful to use in table decorations - as a group or on their ownย  - and you'll have a perfect set dinnertable especially if you combine them with large, white candles.๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ—ฟ

During the last two years I've been using MONKS in many of my paintings. Even though they have a simple expression and form, I feel there are so many different ways I could paint them and create an endless amount of new pieces using them as the main character. They give me calmness and peace just looking at them, and it sure is a joy creating them in different colors using a variety of painting techniques. ๐Ÿ—ฟ
