I just finished this painting yesterday afternoon. The backlit clouds and intensity of hue are pretty effective!
Varnishing and finalizing this painting. Shipping it across the border to Washington State this week!
I am fortunate and so great full that I am continuing to sell my work during these times.
Vashon Center for the Arts
I closed out my show in Western Washington. A lot of travel and time away from the studio. Great excuse to see family and friends.
This time of year light does seem like something either remembered or glimpsed shining on a distant mountain. Light is the star of the show in this painting.
I am going to be putting coats of varnish on this piece today, then time to frame!
Collecting high resolution photographs of your art is critical. At the very least it is something worth looking at later to see how your work has changed and hopefully evolved. I frequently fail to capture images of my paintings and it’s a shame to sell work without retaining a digital version.
Over the weekend I did manage to take some photographs of my recent works. These aren’t the highest resolution, I scaled them down for the website.
I was motivated by a deadline, it always seems to take a deadline!
A couple small water studies, each 8″x10″. I always seem to come back to these meditative pieces.
I have been experimenting with some gel medium in the paint for a little thicker texture. It definitely changes the behavior of the paint in interesting ways. If the ratio of paint to medium is too high the dry color becomes a bit unpredictable, which isn’t a great thing!
This 20″x16″ painting is a recently completed work. My obsession with atmosphere, light and grande expanses motivated this piece.
The entire collection of three together in the second photograph.
These two paintings are each 24″x30″. They are acrylic/open acrylic paintings.
These four paintings were some works I installed at “Evans Brothers” last night. This Sandpoint coffee shop has regular art shows and is a great place to go in Sandpoint, Idaho. In total I have 26 paintings on display, so if you happen to be in North Idaho…
I am drawn back to moody water scenes… probably the change of seasons.
I’m excited to be working on large dibondi panels, they are light weight and will be easier to ship and drag around to art shows!
