Taking a little break from my forest and snow painting. Just a brief break as the snowpocalypse makes it hard to forget!
Two of my mini paintings that will be shipping to Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. I believe I am sending 7 of these small paintings. Abend will be taking them to an LA exhibit.
A painting inspired by the ridge that blocks much of the low winter sun. We have loads of snow coming which is inspiring a lot of winter artwork this year.
Though the daylight is brief the combination of snow and moon last night made for a magical evening. I guess it’s only a matter of time before I paint some large moonlight related imagery.
Another one of my mini paintings. This piece is off to the Netherlands.
Starting a series of paintings focusing on the forest. I live in snow country so there will be some winter imagery, don’t be alarmed.
Light, color and atmosphere are some of the elements I am obsessed with. So a small sunset painting before I really dig into the winter and forest imagery I am inspired to do.
This summer at my show opening a woman asked me, “do you just try to come up with pretentious titles for your work?” Truth is I don’t really try that hard.
This is a pretty special piece. One of those paintings that felt like it held some kind of magic. I know when I feel that way I have to put it aside.
The other day we received 8″ of snow. It is always startling to wake up to such a dramatic shift in the world.
I abandoned what I was working on in the studio and did a couple moody snow scenes. Fun capturing the vibe right outside my window.
I just started a YouTube channel! I have been meaning to do this for years, people constantly asking me if I have one. Well now I do!
In the last week I posted a few super short clips I filmed in the studio. Today I edited my first proper video with text and music. I occasionally put together videos in my other life as a video game artist. It was so rare though that the software was always new to me and it took ages to sort out. So this one I put together with iMovie on my Apple laptop. Having never used iMovie, I was hesitant but it was incredibly simple. Check it out if you get a chance. I will be doing a lot more work on YouTube in the coming year!
