24″x30″ water painting.
This is the first painting I have finished on dibondi aluminum panel. I primed the surface and painted as I normally would. I mounted d-ring hangers on the back and it worked really well! I have been trying to find a way to make my work more transportable for mailing and hauling around to art exhibitions. This seems to work really well and will also be helpful for storage. These paintings can be hung without a frame but would work well with a traditional frame as well.
The terrible forest fires of the west this summer were heartbreaking. The only silver lining was the incredible sunrise and sunsets but I hope we don’t see more fires in coming years… seems to be the way things are headed though.
This painting is 24”x36” acrylic and open acrylic paint.

Suddenly we have snow at the beginning of November! The lake fades into oblivion like a vast ocean… I love that.
I mailed off another batch of paintings to this California gallery. Pretty fond of these, hope they find good homes down there!
Apparently I am doing a little series of trout paintings! This was not my plan but was inspired by some 10” paintings I created a bit over a year ago. Fish are an intriguing subject with their slick metallic skin and smooth curves. This second painting is also 14”x11”.
This is a 14”x11” acrylic painting. There is an intriguing quality to the slick silvery body of a trout, it makes for a compelling subject. They are one of the creatures that live in that big body of water I have become fairly obsessed with so it is nice to pay tribute to the mighty rainbow trout.
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.
