Atmosphere and lighting are often components of my paintings that drive my work. Finding form yet maintaining a sense of mystery.
I have often come back to sunsets as a subject. Of course it is an undeniably beautiful transition but there is also a bit of sadness. Everything ends, we all know this and we are endlessly reminded. I guess that is part of the appeal of sunsets, the wedding of beauty and sorrow.
This painting is finished and ready for my show at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I am also having a limited edition of 30 hand numbered and signed giclee prints made of this piece (prints are 16”x12”).
Final capture of one of the many paintings that will be on display at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The show dates are July 13 through August 6, 2019. In related news I am finally having Giclee Prints made of a select few pieces, including this one!
Another large landscape on the easel. I am working on two paintings this size for a show at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
I have really enjoyed working on such a large cradled board. It seems every time I paint something with some scale I want to do more! As I am finalizing work for my solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon I am also finalizing paintings for a few galleries sprinkled around the country. It seems I am always scrambling.
