The Art Witch Blog

I’m an Art Witch, a multifaceted artist, photographer, designer based in the Norwegian mountains and this is my blog.

This is where I share my creative expression and do my best to inspire, empower, share tips and information, and give the occasional kick in the butt so you can have a more fulfilling life. You’ll also find a lot of art, some behind the scenes and works in progress, as well as some strong opinions, and a swear word or two. If you enjoy the posts, please share them.

A Flaming Watercolour Painting Almost Finished

Back to Real Life After an Amazing Gathering

I've spent Friday-Monday at an Asatru gathering with about 75 amazing friends and being back in regular life feels a bit like abstinence symptoms. There isn't anything addictive or hallucinogenic about a weekend with friends but for an...

Enjoy a Beautiful Spring Sunset While I’m Away

Yes, a sunset was the only thing I could think of to share today. I took this photo in March last year and I love the pattern in the clouds. I'm at a gathering further south in Norway right now so I can't be here to create more complex posts. Enjoy this...

Tackling A New Subject In Art Isn’t Daunting, It’s Exciting

As the great Expressionist painter Henri Mattise once said, "Creativity takes courage". This simple phrase will resonate with any artist that has ever thought about taking on a new art form, subject or medium. Tackling a new subject can be daunting as it...

Happy Constitution Day Norway!

This, That, the Other – Preparing for a Long Weekend

A penny for your thoughts, as they say. I want you to tell me what you'd like to read about here on the blog. What would you love and come back for again and again? I've written about a lot of different subjects over the years and I now need some feedback...

This Weekend It’s Time to Recharge With Friends

Photos From Beautiful Norway in Early May

Here are some photos I've taken so far in May. Some with my camera (Nikon D3300), some with my phone (Sony Xperia X Compact). Norway is beautiful in many ways, right? If you want to see...

Inverting the colours of a flower

For today's art challenge, I'm doing what kattvalk and Kasey Golden have done and painting inverted, as in a negative of the colours. I couldn't see the result of this flower painting until I edited the video so I gave it my best guess :). I hope you like...

A Fire in progress (in watercolour)

It isn't always s easy to see what a work-in-progress will become. I know about as much as you do what this one will end up as 🙂 but the idea for this painting is a fire gate for the next chapter in the magic book we're working on. Want to see...
