Work in progress 12″x16″
I have returned from Pendleton, closing out my most recent solo show. I came over to the studio to prep some paintings for shipment and decided to get a photo of this painting.
Safe travels on this Labor Day weekend!
This is a painting I recently finished but didn’t take to the Pendleton Art Center for my show. In retrospect I should have but decisions aren’t always right!
Here is a collection of some of the paintings I have done this summer. They are all on display at my solo show in Pendleton, Oregon at the Art Center!
It just occurred to me that I left out one of my favorites when I was taking this group photo so I will include it separately!
I mailed these small paintings off to a semi-local gallery in Idaho called “Little Pink House Gallery”. The cloud painting is 10″x8″ and the water painting is 10″x10″
This painting was inspired by the shoreline of Lake Pend Oreille, where I often go walking. There is something magical and intriguing about the rocks fading into the water. This time of year the glow of the waves is especially hypnotic. I do love summer…
This painting is framed up and ready for my upcoming solo exhibit! The colors were tricky to capture with a camera. Some darker paintings tend to be a challenge when it comes to getting a good digital representation.
On my small easel with a glimpse of the studio in the background.
This is one of three storm paintings I have recently finished. This particular one is now framed and ready for the Pendleton, Oregon exhibit!
I wrapped up this large commission painting. It is being delivered to the new owners today! I hope that they will enjoy this tranquil piece for years to come.
The painting is 60″x22″ on a 3″ cradled board, so it is heavy. It is also surprisingly difficult to get a photograph of something this size without reflections or lighting issues. I ran out of time and simply had my Dad take a photo of me holding it!
Two 11″x14″ paintings I wrapped up last night… well aside from varnishing, signing, framing 😳. They really look good together as an accidental diptych!
I often work two or three paintings of similar subject at a time. It keeps my focus narrowed and my paints can be shared between multiple paintings. I frequently make interesting discoveries and small creative jumps with this approach!
