Some mornings I am in the groove, this has been a good one! I love spending my time painting, never thought I would be able to do this full time. Very grateful things have gone the way they have.
A small painting to represent the season. Heavy snowfall in my part of the world.
A collection of small works have been shipped to Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. These works will be on display and available through this excellent art gallery!
More small work happening in the studio. I have been painting some rather large pieces so it is nice to mix it up. Happy Thanksgiving!
More nature adoration happening in my studio this weekend. Driven to paint landscapes void of mankind. I am the type of person that likes my experiences in the wild to be without bipedal intrusion. I have always been a loner.
This morning I put the finishing touches on this small painting. I have a number of boards this unusual size. I will have to order custom floater frames when the time comes.
I sold this painting to a collector over the weekend. This piece was part of an Instagram story showing a number of paintings I was varnishing. It has been a while since I sold a piece so randomly, lifted my spirits a bit. Now it is framed and ready for its voyage to Atlanta, Georgia!
This photo was taken 5 weeks ago, much warmer days. Now I am wearing layers and a stocking cap in the studio. Acrylic paint dries much more slowly with these temperatures which is a benefit of the season!
I have been painting a lot of forest scenes recently. It occurred to me that this is a pattern I have followed for a few years in the fall. The low sun this time of year is beautiful and haunting. It drives home the temporary quality of our existence.
This large wave painting is now available at the Grand Bohemian Gallery in St. Augustine, Florida!
