A brooding forest scene. Experimenting with some new ideas.
Last weeks TBT has inspired me to pursue some small water panels.
15”x6 1/4” acrylic
Mountains to the East roll into Montana. Lake Pend Oreille is what drew me to North Idaho.
A painting from a couple weeks back.
dang my WordPress app no longer works and editing this on my phone is very painful. Anyone else having issues?
Another autumnal painting inspired by North Idaho. The leaves have pretty much all fallen now. I was meaning to do more fall imagery, maybe I will do some larger ones as the seasons change.
This is a painting from 2016. Painted in Idaho it now resides with a collector in Hong Kong!
We are preparing to enter our 4th winter living in North Idaho on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. I realize the calendar says winter starts well into December but that’s not really the case here.
The mountains are accumulating snow and the lower country, where I live, is supposed to get around 10″ of snow next week! I call it the forever snow as it will be on the ground until sometime in April.
The lake drew me here, a muse, an endless source of inspiration. Nature on display in grand fashion. Though winter is long it is exceptionally stunning. I love the snowy silence of winter in the studio. The good time summer vibe is over, but Lake Pend Oreille remains. It turns out I much prefer the desolate waters of winter.
Note: By February I will be pretty excited about summer…
This painting was sold through Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. I still have a few other paintings there, excited to have work in N.C.
North Idaho is a heavily timbered part of the country. I am beginning work on a series that pays tribute to the forest. Of course I will be working on many other things as I can not help it.
