Everything started in 2013 when I made a compilation of three square images below,
I named them San Antonio River Walk. The original(s) sold in San Antonio, Texas.
Then, when the owner of the Fargladan Gallery in Karlskrona, Sweden (my hometown), saw those three paintings, he asked me to create something similar for my exhibition in his gallery in the summer of 2014. As Karlskrona sits on an island called Trosso, I created two similar sets of three square paintings;
Trosso 1 sold in Karlskrona and Trosso 2 (still available)

When I once was able to buy a lot of large canvases at a very good price, I could not resist the opportunity. Although I had no idea what to do with all of them. Then, one day, in October 2014, I began to paint the last canvas in what eventually became SBN 1. Please see above on the right. The underlined N indicates that it is the last piece in the triptych # 1 of Streets, Blocks & Neighborhood. When I had created the narrow piece SBN 1, I still had not figured out what to do with it. Please, keep in mind that I'm self-taught, I had no idea about triptychs. Anyway, I was elaborating the addition of another larger square on the left just to see what happened, which then became SBN 1. In that process, I saw a city come alive under my hands ... The total size is 84 inches wide and 36 inches high.
2.54 cm = 1 inch
STREETS, BLOCKS & NEIGHBORHOOD, SBN
Seven triptychs, all vertically connected, all with the same name, but numbered as shown below on the right All with the same color spectrum. The size of each horizontal triptych is 213 x 92 centimeters (1 inch = 2.54 cm). The white horizontal line between the following set below is the divider between the triptychs. I created these triptychs during the 2014-2015, Media; acrylics on canvas. Each triptych can be placed as you see fit. If space allows vertically, you can stack them.
