This is another small painting (8″x8″). Reducing everything down to the simple basics of sunshine and water.
It is summer after all! There are only so many for each of us, word is less every year…
My sister and brother in law made the treck to North Idaho to visit over the 4th of July weekend. We had a lot of fun on the water enjoying the rewards of summer.
I sent her home with a couple of paintings she was fond of!
Three 5″x5″ cloud studies.
I found some small boards that were prepped for painting while unpacking some boxes in my studio… so I painted on them! It is a nice change to change the scale of my work. It is also a reminder how much more I like simple fresh marks on a painting.
…and evening follows.
This is an 8″x8″ acrylic painting. I have always liked tonalism and an overcast morning really displays that kind of magic. Now that summer is finally here we are seeing beautiful bright mornings, I will play around with some of that imagery, never enough summer days in this short life.
A quick little 10″x10″ painting. The simple theme of light and dark are a consistent pursuit in my work.
I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.
Exciting electric display this evening in North Idaho!
This weekend I unexpectedly sold this 48″x36″ cow painting. I have mixed feelings about selling it but am excited it is moving to Jackson, Wyoming. A really good friend’s sister purchased it for her house so I hope to see it again someday!
I mailed this 10″x10″ acrylic painting to Indiana this week. I’m staying put but my paintings are enjoying a bit of travel.
I am not actually going to Spain but one of my recent small painting is. I posted a video of this 8″x8″ painting I called ” Everything” on instagram and a fellow DMed me to inquire about purchasing it… and so off to Barcelona it goes.
