This is the first in a series of paintings I am working on. I have always been obsessed with the movement of clouds and the power and energy of nature. This is only a slight shift of vision but once in a while you see something in your work that clicks.
I am shipping this painting to Missoula, Montana today. It will be headed to the Radius Gallery, a really great contemporary gallery in downtown Missoula.
Here is a link to some of my work currently at Radius Gallery:
I am spending a lot of time framing and packing up art this weekend. It is not my favorite part of the job but it means work is selling which helps keep the lights on!
These two paintings are headed to Georgia!
Here is a link to Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana. Some of my work can be purchased with the link.
Another cloud painting inspired by the low winter sun of the north! Pictured in progress on my studio table.
Transitions is a great title, it was the name of this painting also the name of my solo show last winter. The show was last March on Bainbridge Island at the Bainbridge Island Center for the Arts.
Visual transitions are critical to my work and their importance can’t be over stated. To me the use of paint, the way it is applied, is a driving force. Mark making and the flow of motion through a painting can make the most mundane intriguing. In life transitions can be terrible but I don’t live in the real world too often.
This painting was purchased by one of my very best friends. The best work rarely gets back home.
This is a very airy and bright painting. The photo was taken on my studio table with some of the tools of the trade.
Inspired by low clouds that seem to form and disappear so quickly. The blinding sun tempered by mist. This is another meditative piece.
I am busy prepping work for a solo show in Sacramento at the Elliott Fouts Gallery. My studio counter is filling up, still so much to do!
I deliver the work in early January, which is sounding soon here in November!
This post seemed appropriate for Halloween. I finished this one up over the weekend. I am pretty obsessed with the mark making and expressive sky.
I continue painting some nocturnal imagery. I had painted one moon inspired landscape and decided that was enough. That night I saw the moon rise above the Cabinet Mountains and decided I could put some more paint to panel!
The moon has been pretty incredible this week on Lake Pend Oreille. I decided to do a little series, this is the second one!
