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!
It is hard to say goodbye to Summer. The Fall is here and the sun still so warm and bright but like all things it is transition. Winter waiting patiently with it’s cold dark promise.
This is a 16″x16″ acrylic painting I just finished. This painting has a subtle intriguing beauty that doesn’t really translate well in photographic form… some transitions are tricky.
One of the four 24″x24″ Lake Pend Oreille paintings I recently completed on commission.
I mailed this 10″x10″ acrylic painting to Indiana this week. I’m staying put but my paintings are enjoying a bit of travel.
I am painting a couple of atmospheric paintings inspired by Lake Coeur d’Alene. I was there on a weekend outing and saw some pretty spectacular clouds over the lake. The lighting was very dramatic and inspirational.This is the first painting I have done, it is 16’x16″. I am pretty pleased with the outcome but it doesn’t begin to do my memory justice. I will post the next one when I complete it as well.
Three atmospheric paintings recently completed. Experimenting with a combination of acrylic and oil paint. I am attaching a video sequence as well, the image loses something in translation.
