I have a soft spot in my heart for this particular painting. It encapsulates a lot of the elements I strive for in my work. I liked this painting so much that I was abnormally fearful of dropping it or damaging it in some unknown way! Kind of funny considering I destroy work all of the time, it is part of the process of creation for me. As a result I am less sentimental about work… but apparently not always!
I have been working hard on a large commission since returning from my solo show in Astoria. I believe I will have it wrapped up this weekend! I am then framing it and shipping it off to wine country in California. I will post a finished photo before I package it up.
Another painting from the show I am having in Astoria, Oregon at the McVarish Gallery. The exhibition runs until July 12th so if you are in the area, give it a look!
This is a very recent open acrylic painting. The edges of day and night are always inspiring and contemplative. The mood can be tranquil but there is also the reminder of our time passing.
My solo show opened last night at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I was excited to have my parents attend one of my shows, along with my Aunt and Uncle! A lot of great people showed up and made the evening fun and kept me talking. Here is a collection of photos from the evening.
This painting is part of my “Transitions” exhibit opening tonight at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I have dropped off my newest collection of work at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. This painting is part of the collection and very appropriate for this misty coastal day!
I know it’s silly but what the heck! These acrylic paintings now reside in Hong Kong, I have sent a surprising amount of work to different folks there… I should be getting better at geography. My art has seen much more of the world than I have… though I have done some traveling!
Just to break up the landscapes I painted this rainbow trout. It was a fun change of pace, a lot of paint manipulation and experimenting. The painting difficult to capture with a photograph so I am including a closeup that is more inline with the feel of the painting.
I am mailing these two paintings to “Minted” in California. They will be taking very high resolution images to be used in large scale prints and murals.
