My latest collection of work at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. The gallery is building out a new gallery space and I am excited to have some new pieces there. I will also be having a show in the gallery next June!
I procrastinate varnishing work. It’s maybe a psychological thing but once something is varnished it is truly done. Even a painting like this one that I really like and won’t change… haven’t varnished it. It takes a sale or an upcoming show to force my hand. That just adds unnecessary pressure down the line. Yeah, it sounds like a psychological issue.
I really like the color scheme and moody vibes of this painting. As I prepare a lot of giant boards I am going to be going back and forth between small paintings and huge panels. Ultimately I want to create more large scale epic works. The large pieces are much more expensive to make and end up with a large price tag so tougher to sell. Ultimately they are more satisfying and I aim to please myself.

I am finally adding more work to my Ugallery site. I have submitted 6 paintings, it typically takes a week or so before they are available on the website. I will be adding more work to their site in the coming months.
Exploring water imagery with abstraction and expressive mark making. Like many of my paintings I want to make them larger.
I love a dramatic landscape. I have been up before dawn hiking and watching the sun break across the lake. Blasting color through the thick forest. Nature is endlessly inspiring.
Another summer has slipped away. I always feel a little crushed this time of year. Every season has its beauty and the lights will stay bright in the studio.
In a strange moody land.
