In Bloom

Apocalyptic Bloom I 24”x18” acrylic on wood

This is a painting I did in November. Part of an ongoing series.

I did not include this piece in my Sacramento show or send it off to any of the galleries I work with. Really unusual piece but I’m really excited about it. It feels like the beginning of something even if it looks more like the end.

Five Works

Five new paintings shipped to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming! I am excited to be sending more art to Jackson Hole. Such a beautiful place and a strong art community.

Sacramento

My solo show is ongoing at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, CA. It will run the month of February.

I went down for the second Saturday art opening! It was fun to talk to art enthusiasts and buyers. It was a very successful show for the gallery and myself. So much work goes into such an event, you never know what will happen. I keep my mind focused on the art… it’s all there is to do.

As a painter I tend to be very solitary, in my own head. Funny how much I find myself talking at these shows…

Kootenai

Kootenai Mirror 10”x10” acrylic on wood panel

Last weekend we took a little road trip to the Kootenai National wildlife refuge. We didn’t arrive until the evening but the lighting and views were magnificent! The main loop drive was closed for the winter, but worth the trek regardless!

I have done a few little winter scenes inspired by the evening. I hope to paint a larger image next.

Light and Fluffy

Rising 16”x20” acrylic on wood panel

Light and fluffy, it’s the way I like my pancakes. It is also an accurate description of this particular cloud painting. This one was a bit of a challenge to paint. I wanted to combine that brilliant floating feel with my sculpted mark making approach.
