Drawing deep the air is cold water. The wind numbing it shutters my fear. A little peace while the sun is shining.
My Aunt Anna and Uncle Mike came through North Idaho on their way back to Wyoming. They had never seen this part of the state so it was fun to give them a little lake tour. I gave them this little sunset painting as my Aunt has talked about owning one of my paintings for years!
This painting just sold through Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina.
A great gallery started years ago by a college art couple that followed their dream! Now it is a hugely successful gallery in a great historic town. I hope to visit some day preferably when it cold up here!
Once again you made me your fool. All those warm days and late nights the sun barely resting. I tried so hard to keep you by my side.
Now you are off to some southern land. I laugh as you go but I will never forgive you. I prize my solitude and I will cling to the darkness. Maybe I will pine over an old photo of you this winter. In April a sparrow might spark a faint memory.
Damn, I just want you to come back.
This painting sold over the weekend at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. We also had some rainfall in North Idaho Saturday which I am thankful for! Wildfire season can be terribly Smokey so the occasional rain in the heat of August are a blessing.
Shipping this painting to RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon! They have kept a nice display of my work after my show wrapped. Excited to maintain a presence in Astoria!
This painting is at Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina. I have painted many sunsets, this was a good one. The vertical format and warm water reflections really made this one.
Where has the summer gone? I am working on pieces for an October show and already dreading summers departure. Dig deep, that’s all there is to do.
I have spent a lot of time this summer delivering art and and visiting galleries. I am currently on a road trip to close out my “Apocalyptic Beauty” exhibit. I took a slight detour to drop off a painting I sold to a great friend recently. He immediately took down a framed print and hung this painting in its place of honor. Now off to Astoria, Oregon!
This one of two paintings I have at Gallery MAR Carmel in Carmel, California. I dropped in to check out the gallery when I was on my California vacation. Great gallery in a cool town!
