On the Wind

Messenger 30”x24” acrylic on cradled board

I have been working steadily on some powerful storm imagery. This particular piece is one of my favorites.

I did not have specific plans for these, just driven to create them. Horizon Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, wanted them. They ended up selling this one before I could get it varnished. So Messenger, will be shipping directly to California. The other three will heading to Wyoming. I will post images of them all when they leave North Idaho.

A little color

Slipping 14”x11” acrylic on wood panel

I have been working on very moody paintings. It is the kind of work I love.

To mix things up I thought I would try to capture the brilliance of some of our recent sunsets. They seem especially dramatic after a gloomy day. The clouds lifting to an explosion of light.

Three Winter Paintings

Sentries 14”x11” acrylic on panel

In North Idaho winter is a very real season. I love to be in the studio working this time of year! I don’t feel guilty about being inside, and it’s such a beautiful view. I decided to capture a little of the winter feel in these small paintings. I will probably do a couple larger paintings on the theme soon.

Continue making waves!

Rolling Glass 21”x8” acrylic on panel

This is the last of my smaller wave paintings. I am moving on to the large commission at long last! It is not going to be a recreation of any of the recent wave paintings. It will however pull ideas from each of them. Most of all I was trying to get my brain in the mindset of the ocean and surf.
