Final shot of this painting. Now on display at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. This is one of four paintings I have at the gallery.
I painted this during our first legitimate snowfall on Tuesday. The painting didn’t actually keep me warm but I know it tried.
I only have a couple of these 12″x12″ boards left, I have really enjoyed working at this dimension. Trying to dig through old artworks and sand them down. Reuse existing materials, recycling is a lot of work!
This painting is more than a few years old. Sometimes it is good to look back.
For me inspiration is happiness, much desired but elusive. It is the fuel that powers motivation and makes for possibilities.
I force myself to start on a new work, make that first mark. If I surrender doubt, I get lost in the process of painting. Creativity is an adventure that generates its own form of inspiration.
In my life I have felt like a negative soul. Still it seems the act of creation is an act of optimism.
These four paintings have been been shipped Fedex Ground to Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. They are supposed to be delivered today, hopefully they make it safe and sound!
Enjoying these modest sized panels. I have been prepping a lot of large boards as well, mixing up the scale.
16”x16” and 18”x18”
A lineup of wave paintings from last week. This week I will refocus on commissions and bigger projects.
Mist, forest and water are some of the best components of the Northwest. There are moments of solitude in nature that have shaped me.
It is difficult, I am difficult. Thinking back to past relationships I see my faults. I see my wrongs in the darkest manner. Thinking forward as a person of growth I see the changes needed. I want to evolve, I want to be better. Here I am.
