A little mood on this Monday morning.
Intense colors and strong contrast really gives this painting a lot of impact.
An older painting I recently dug up. I put a couple more hours into it and like the result. I rarely go back to older work unless I need a surface to paint on.
This painting was sold a number of years ago through Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana.
One last study before starting a 36”x24” commission. This one is a loose take on the composition, values and colors. The large painting will be much more detailed but I love the loose vibe and motion of this small take.
Varnished, framed, packed and shipped. It all takes a lot of extra time but it is a critical part of the gig. This one is now in the hands of FedEx, shipping to Alabama.
This one resides in Kirkland, Washington with some of my favorite people.
I finished this apocalyptic beauty over the weekend. This image is from a high resolution photograph in my studio this morning.
More inspiration from the forest. I am very fortunate to live close to a National Forest trailhead. I have been using it constantly and it renews my inspiration daily. With so much snow already building up, not sure if I will be able to keep it up… I will try.
A nice bit of drama with this piece. I am starting a large commission so I have been doing some related studies.
