Peter Dahl’s paintings


weekend #23 photos


“Peter Dahl considered his life as artist,

with all the conflicts and sensations that his paintings have

sometimes aroused.

This happened over a dinner in Mora in April 2011.

Peter Dahl turned to me and said with a weak smile,

“All I ever wanted to do was just to paint.”

(Johan Cederlund, director of the Zorn Museum).

  1. Really enjoyed the paintings and your drawing! The paintins are so colorfull! May be your’s will turn full of color as well 🙂

    I’ve been resting my brain this week. No studies. May be tomorro…. 😉

  2. I have not been studying. That’s part of the problem. I have some legal matters and financial planning matters that need my attention, but first I need to do a bit of research on those topics.

  3. great paintings and shadows. nice job on the drawing!!! i studied the lesson of patience!! study that way to much sometimes…have a great week!!!!

  4. Heippa,
    Nothing much for my part. I just been digging myself on my job. Lots of problems to solve. FInnish clients are complicated to deal with §;-) not french nor Swiss either. Giving me a headache… LOL

    Peter Dahl is so famous, of course…

    Happy Sunday, Helsinki and enjoy the rest of the day.

  5. As soon as I saw the red headed king of the tavern figure, I thought of the self-portrait image of Van Gogh! Such a similar “look”! Another rebel painting to his own music! Lovely series of photos!

  6. I especially love “My Grandmother’s House”. It has such a nice feeling to it.

    Very evocative paintings, some of them are-as in, I wonder what the story is behind this? Kind of thing.

    Love your life study-I think the human body is the hardest thing to draw.

    What have I studied this week? The relationship between public art and economic development.

  7. The artist leaves each view by giving us his idea of the scene while leaving the details a bit confusing to allow us to further interpret the view. Cool it is, the King of the tavern is in charge, or is it the lady instead? I enjoy trying to interpret the complex mind of the artist 🙂

  8. Ensimmäistä kertaa kuulen tästä taiteilijasta. Isoäidin talo on hyvä!Ja sinun piirroksesi samoin.En ole koskaan opiskellut piirtämistä tai maalausta,mutta olisi kiva opetella.Kadehdin kälyäni,joka opiskelee kuvataideakatemiassa,joa oppii kaiken tekniikoista….
