I finished this apocalyptic beauty over the weekend. This image is from a high resolution photograph in my studio this morning.
This painting seemed like the perfect post for Halloween. Part of a series of dark tree imagery I created this year. I intended to paint some huge versions but the pandemic, fires and general apocalyptic vibe of the year dulled my enthusiasm… at least for now.
Today I am standing still, reflecting on previous paintings. Thinking about the way forward… possibly cleaning my studio.
One of my favorite paintings from a couple years back. This one is at The RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
This seems like the album cover for a band I was never in.
As an artist I often feel compelled to make work. This year I created s body of work called “Apocalyptic Bloom”. They weren’t paintings the the galleries representing me wanted. It is not artwork that my average collector would be into. Still I took this side road that represented a large part of 2019. I will always follow my artistic curiosities and interests.
This painting is on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. A new gallery to represent me since I started the journey.
This painting shares its title with the ongoing series. It is such a bloom, I just couldn’t help it! The piece is probably my favorite to date in the series. These paintings are a bit hypnotic, I find myself lost in thought staring into them.
Another unusual painting in my Apocalyptic Bloom series. This is an ongoing collection of paintings I am creating for no discernible reason… that’s really how it ought to be!
My newest painting in an ongoing series I call Apocalyptic Bloom. I have been trying to build a collection of these works but have sold off a few. Putting together and intriguing show.
