This one did not make my top 9 of 2019 but it was one of my favorites of the year! Available at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
Merry Christmas 2019! I hope everyone is able to spend some time with friends and family. Thinking of good times past, present and future.
This painting now resides in Portland, Oregon. I captured a final photo of the piece before shipping it. Sadly the photo didn’t have the clarity of the actual art. Someday I hope to upgrade my camera…

Darkness lurks along the edge. The brightest day may bloom from night. Left on a forgotten road it always finds the way.
Three small acrylic paintings, each 5″x7″. I am working on small pieces in preparation for larger works. The middle painting just sold this morning.
Rainbows really have a magical feel. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were no scientific explanation.
It is a stream darkly meandering.
Negativity eroding the shore.
Stay dry, the current is strong.
I often hear about Holiday depression. This year I seem to be feeling it. A terrible dread and sense of hopelessness. Perhaps it is a chemical thing. Maybe something to do with the sun failing to rise above the hill. I posted something regrettable last night on WordPress, I am sorry for that. I hope everyone is doing well this Holiday Season.
I wasn’t going to do it this year, but my will is weak. Here are my best nine from Instagram!
Thank you all for so much support in 2019. As an introvert sharing my art online runs contrary to all of my solitary instincts. I am alive, inspired and motivated so 2020, be gentle.
Promo photograph for Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. I have solo show at this great gallery in August of 2020! This is going to be a huge exhibit and I am digging in to make my very best work.
About the artist:
My name is Brian Sostrom. I am a full-time painter, and a lifetime painter, living in North Idaho. I paint what I consider to be psychological landscapes. Inspired by nature but never striving to do what the camera can.
