I recently completed this 14″X11″ acrylic painting. I was very pleased with the feel of this particular piece. I have been on a vacation but I am very eager to get back to the paint!
This is another 24″x24″ painting I very recently completed as part of a commission.
Bold lighting elements and soft moody atmospheric work is seemingly simple but is very challenging to paint with acrylic and open acrylic paint.
I am drawn to enigmatic imagery and though this subject is straight forward it still has a bit of mystery…. that’s what it’s all about for me.
One of the six large water paintings I have been busily working on. They are all 24″x24″.
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.
This week I mailed off two paintings to a new collector in Hong Kong. Two of my favorite water paintings, funny to think they will be on a wall so far from Idaho.
This is another small painting (8″x8″). Reducing everything down to the simple basics of sunshine and water.
It is summer after all! There are only so many for each of us, word is less every year…
Three 5″x5″ cloud studies.
I found some small boards that were prepped for painting while unpacking some boxes in my studio… so I painted on them! It is a nice change to change the scale of my work. It is also a reminder how much more I like simple fresh marks on a painting.
…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.
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.
