Dark Thoughts

Dark Thoughts

It is a stream darkly meandering.

Negativity eroding the shore.

Stay dry, the current is strong.

Clark Fork Moon, 12”x16” acrylic


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.

Abend Gallery Promo

Brian Sostrom in Studio

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.
