Commissions 


Gathering up some paintings in my studio that were commissions. I painted four 24″x24″ paintings for a great family that has a house on Lake Pend Oreille. Painting these was a real pleasure knowing they would be hanging lakeside on this beautiful North Idaho lake. 

I will be posting more images of the four paintings along with two additional paintings very soon!

Studio Work

I have been busy balancing my time and mostly burning up the too few summer days. This is a photo of the clean portion of my studio!

I am working on a pretty exciting commission, four big water paintings (24″x24″) inspired by Lake Pend Oreille. Hoping to have them finished by the weekend, this is one of four.

Morning Comes


…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.

Dark Reveals Light


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.
